Census of all pending cases in court good idea

The ongoing census of pending cases in Kenyan courts and removal of tainted and incompetent judges and magistrates is commendable.
Judiciary transformation is long overdue. Kenyan courts require a paradigm shift if not a quantum leap in order to restore the eroded public confidence.
Various factors have hampered judicial reforms. For example, corruption, ceaseless adjournments, stay of execution, bailing process, injunction, delayed rulings and judgement, among other factors.
Consequently, there are numerous backlogs of cases, which are pending in various courts undetermined. Bad laws are the worst form of tyranny and justice delayed is justice denied.
