According to the Chief Justice, he discussed with Chepkwony areas of possible mutual collaboration even though he did not give further details.

Also, Maraga held closed-door meetings with lawyers and judges working within Kericho High Court.

"Today, I visited the Kericho Law Courts and met with the staff, advocates, and interacted with members of the public to get a feedback on our services. 

"I also paid a courtesy call on HE Governor (Prof.) Paul Chepkwony and held consultation on areas of mutual cooperation," said CJ Maraga.

Kericho, neighbouring Kisii and Nyamira are some of the counties that have opened new court blocks, projects which are being spearheaded by the Chief Justice.

Maraga, who is set to retire next year, has been keen to improve Judiciary infrastructure, arguing that all 47 Counties should get descent structures.

Before his exit, Maraga ought to deal with persistent criticism from the executive with President Uhuru Kenyatta often accusing the Judiciary of laxity.

Kericho's trip also comes at the time Maraga is pushing to have 41 new High Court judges appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
