The Registrar of the High Court of Kenya has announced the closure of the Milimani Law Courts for the period begining January 29 to January 31, 2021.
In a statement, the Registrar stated that the closure will pave way for a fumigation exercise at the courts as a measure to curb the spread of Covid-19 through the corridors of justice.
The fumigation exercise will be conducted on January 29 and January 30, with the last day of the month, expected to allow for aeration of the chambers.An empty court room.File
The Registrar further announced that normal services at the court will resume on February 1, 2021
"We regret the inconvenience caused to all court users," the statement reads in part.
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, the courts have devised measures to prevent further spread of the virus while deliberating on cases as well.
Several courthouses in the country resorted to virtual hearings while others sought to hold cases in open spaces.
The move to close the courts for fumigation come at the back of the persistent positive Covid-19 cases in the country.
On January 26, the Ministry of Health had announced that 141 more people had tested positive for Covid-19 from a sample size of 3,571 tested in 24 hours leading up to January 26.
The cumulative confirmed positive Covid-19 cases in the country now stands at 100,193.
Cumulative recoveries in the country is at 83,625 after 207 more patients were discharged after recovering from the virus.A judge hears a case outside Milimani Law Courts.
