Egerton University trains over 40 chiefs

More than 40 chiefs from six Nakuru sub-counties have benefited from legal aid training. The administrators were drawn from Nakuru West, Subukia, Naivasha, Molo, Bahati and Rongai.

“The main objective of the training is to impact skills to the chiefs to enable them mitigate in human rights cases, gender-based violence, and resolve other family problems amicably within their jurisdictions,” said Dr Ruth Aura on Wednesday.

Dr Aura, who is also the Egerton University Dean of the Faculty of Law, said the project seeks to strengthen the justice system among the administrators.  

“Some of the residents, due to poverty, are unable to access justice but, once we empower the chiefs with legal aid knowledge, they will help bridge the justice gap at the grassroots,” said Dr Aura.
