Judiciary Open Day Celebration

Kenya Highlands University had the distinct honour of hosting a remarkable Judicial Open Day celebration in our university grounds. Led by our Ag.Vice Chancellor, Dr. Daniel Ngeno, the event saw an enthusiastic turnout from our staff and students. This significant day was organised by key stakeholders, including; the Kericho County Judiciary, the County Government of Kericho, Kenya Prison Service – Kericho, Kenya Police Service – Kericho, Kericho County Probation Department, Kericho County Children Department, National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) – Kericho Branch, Kenya Forestry Service – Kericho, National Land Commission – Kericho and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) – Kericho.

The theme for this year’s celebration was “Alternative Justice System,” reflecting a commitment to exploring and implementing diverse methods of delivering justice. The day’s activities emphasized the importance of restorative justice, mediation, and other community-based approaches in fostering a more inclusive and effective legal system.

In a significant gesture of environmental stewardship, we were proud to plant 1,000 tree seedlings on our campus. This green initiative was generously supported by the Kericho County Judiciary, underscoring our shared commitment to environmental sustainability and the beautification of our university grounds.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our partners for their invaluable support and collaboration in making this event a resounding success. Together, we are not only promoting a progressive justice system but also nurturing a greener, healthier environment for future generations.

Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to this memorable day. We look forward to continuing our partnerships and enhancing our community through such impactful initiatives.
