Chief Justice Martha Koome has announced plans to introduce electronic case filing in all court stations across the country.
Koome said the phased rollout set to start next month in Mombasa is a result of successful implementation in Nairobi.
"We have now embarked on the second phase of the graduated rollout of E-filing in all court stations countrywide. This will begin with the launch of E-filling in Mombasa County in April," Koome said.
She spoke during the opening of the 10th heads of stations forum in Laikipia.
The forum brings together magistrates from 134 court stations and 14 Kadhis courts across the country.
CJ Koome commended the heads for their efforts in ensuring that all files are active.
She urged them to conduct annual case audits so that any file that is inactive is identified and reactivated to sustain expedited delivery of justice.
"I urged them to audit pending judgments or rulings to ensure timely delivery as well as identify bottlenecks and come up with homegrown solutions to these challenges," a statement read in part.
Under the electronic system launched by former CJ David Maraga, all lawyers, police, DPP and members of the public are required to register themselves through a portal to log into the Judiciary system.
The portal is https://efiling.court.go.ke.
After logging in, one is expected to upload documents and also assess court fees.
Subsequently, one has to submit the files to the registry online for the matter to be filed and placed before a judge for a hearing.
lt has an option, once logged in, where one indicates the type of case being filed and checks the filing fees.
On the platform, one comes across E-Case Registration, E-Payment, E-Case Search, E-Calendar and E-Service.
