Kenya: Chief Justice Wants Women Included in Kadhi Courts

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga has appealed to Muslim leaders to consider allowing women to serve in Kadhi courts.

Mutunga says this will help in reducing a back-log of cases at the courts especially for marriage and divorce cases. He says almost ten counties face a shortage of judges in the courts thus denying millions justice.
