Judiciary Pay Tribute to Late Justice Beatrice Thuranira

The Judiciary family together with members of the legal profession and other court users gathered at the Milimani Ceremonial Hall to honour the late Lady Justice Beatrice Thuranira Jaden who passed on March 27, this year in India.

The late Justice Beatrice died at a hospital in India where she was undergoing treatment.

Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu who presided over a special court tribute to honour the deceased at Milimani Courts, described Judge Beatrice as a stoic who showed up to work in high spirits despite her illness.

“It was a while before any of us discovered Beatrice was ailing, she never saw herself as a victim and rarely used her illness as an excuse for anything,” said Mwilu.

She added, “I discovered the gravity of the matter in 2021 when she was due for transfer and came to see me with her medical reports asking to stay in Nairobi where her doctor was stationed.”

Mwilu said the late Judge’s condition was serious and worsened over time, an issue that made the office cancel the transfer to enable her continue with her treatment.

She prayed to God to grant her soul eternal rest.

In her tribute, the Principle Judge of the High Court Lady Justice Lydia Achode, remembered the late Judge as a woman of substance and one who was a complete pleasure to work with.

“Although it is hard to say goodbye to a friend I have worked with for over three decades, she has run a good race and now it’s time for her to rest. May the Almighty God rest her soul in eternal peace,” said Achode.

The Law Society of Kenya President Eric Theuri eulogised Beatrice as an astute Judge who leaves behind an enviable record to be studied and emulated by many.

“Her discharge of judicial duty was proper and impartial. The late Judge showed calmness, was personified and had a commendable grasp of the legal process. May her soul rest in Eternal peace,” said Theuri.
