On the weekend of 16th-18th of October 2015 it was time again time for the Western Region to train the Court Users Committee through our learning and capacity building forum. The forum was held at Golf Hotel, Kakamega. Court Users Committee (CUCs) is a key avenue through which Kituo Cha Sheria can realize its mission of empowering the poor and the marginalized persons to effectively access justice. A total of 30 participants engaged in the training and discussions on sexual gender based violence, refugee law and asylum seekers rights.
The participants included Chief Magistrate, magistrates, judges, officers from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution, Children officers, Advocates and officers from the office of the immigration. The training was facilitated by SGBV expert Lydiah Muthiani, resource persons from International Rescue Committee and Kituo Cha Sheria. The training was very interactive. The participants shared their opinions on the subject matter and also gave their time to learn more.
We have also learned a lot and look forward to the final Court Users Committee Learning and Capacity building forum in the Eastern region.
