Sunday, 6th March 2017

"A total of 65 cases with a value of Sh500 million have been disposed off through mediation in Nairobi, the judiciary has said.

The oldest of the 65 cases was filed 15 years ago.

According to judiciary, 242 cases were referred for mediation. 

Of the 242, some 139 cases were from the commercial division with a value of Sh4 billion, whereas 103 cases were from the family division and one was a divorce case.

Out of the 139 from the commercial division, 25 cases have been resolved while the family division managed to resolve 40 cases.

The commercial division recorded six cases under full settlement whereas the family division recorded 23.

Parties in five cases in the commercial division entered consent, whereas three other cases are part settled. This means a total of 11 cases are still not settled in the commercial division and 17 in the family division.

Twenty-six per cent of those who opted to use the mediation method of resolving cases were between the age bracket of 31 to 40 and 51 to 60 years."
