The Economics of Pretrial Detention: Reducing Congestion in Kenya’s Prisons

Author(s) Jackline Kagume, Leo Kipkogei Kemboi,

Theme: Diplomacy, Economic Development,

Key policy actors in the criminal justice system have raised concerns over prison congestion in the recent past. The former Chief Justice David Maraga decried the condition of prisons, stating that the number of prisoners remanded was causing congestion in the facilities. The Chief Justice raised concerns over the rising number of people remanded in prisons for petty crimes. He noted that most offenders in remand had failed to raise money to facilitate bonds and cash bails and stated that the Judiciary would review bail and bond terms to make them realistic rather than repressive.

Budget Brief for the Fiscal Year 2022–2023: Judiciary, Parliament, and Selected Constitutional Commissions and Independent Offices

Author(s) Jackline Kagume, Leo Kipkogei Kemboi,

Theme: Budget,

The Institute of Economic Affairs prepared this budget brief with the aim of providing a summary of the budgets of two branches of government—the Judiciary and Parliament—as well as a few constitutional commissions and independent offices. The main objectives of this analysis are to monitor judicial funding and identify issues that could enhance parliament’s allocations to the Judiciary and allow better service delivery for provision of the public good of justice administration. In order to provide this public good, the main priorities include quick resolution of cases and elimination of case backlogs. Regarding constitutional commissions and independent offices, they are small (in comparison to the three branches of government) and could easily be overlooked in the budget process, which is largely based on political bidding, given the oversight role that these institutions play in Kenya’s democratic framework.
