In Summary

  • In the High Court, each judge has about 1,674 cases to decide, which means the High Court will require 4,566 days (12.51 years) to clear the pending cases.
  • The sad reality is that many of the cases in the commercial and family divisions should not have ended up in court.
  • In a recent banking study, the average arbitration case took 2.5 hours of negotiation to be resolved, and both parties, the bank and the client, remained friends.

The Judiciary is not as neat and simple as it is painted.

It isn’t just justice, a beautiful girl with covered eyes. It isn’t just the Constitution, Wanjiku, guaranteeing my rights and facilitating access to justice for all.

The Judiciary is really a humongous state apparatus that handles justice, the operation of law and the hopes and relationships of forty million people.

In Summary

Kenya Airways woes may not have come from the blues; no not! Somebody did a wrong; either in the Boardroom or the Excom. It may be one of those scandals that we cannot sweep under the carpet.

  • The cheapest KQ ticket from Nairobi to Addis costs roughly £305 while a similar kind of ticket aboard Ethiopian would go for £107. How many people really see this?
  • It could be pity, cowardice or laziness; whatever the case; but we find it terribly hard to say no; this has become a widespread cancer in the corporate world.
  • The painful truth of such loss seems to be may be the misuse or misallocation of funds, unethical and undeclared conflicts of interest or poor hiring of staff, or possibly a combination of all the above.

A very contemporary thought, indeed, as each new scam seems to come up with its share of names of civil servants – serving and retired. And these are not your run-of-the-mill type of civil servants but persons who have held responsible positions in governments across the globe. The perpetrators of corruption have perfected the art of using the civil servant because they know that by the end of the day, they will not be caught but the civil servant would. It is advisable that a reasonable civil servant avoid partying with interested persons, accepting lavish gifts and sponsoring near relatives for jobs within companies that have dealings with him/her because this exposes him/her to these perpetrators.

Imagine you lived in a community where you never needed to ask for anything. People around you were so focused on loving each other that they made sure your needs were always met. And you trusted that God and his people would completely meet all your needs, no matter what happens in your life. That’s the community we were designed to be a part of.

We have seen successful businesses fail, we have witnessed profitably running businesses suffer from a downfall and some seemingly effective Corporate organizations receive a great fall in their profits and popularity. One of the main reasons behind these surprising failures is the lack of business ethics. A true understanding of the right and the wrong and the ability to distinguish between them is ethics. Ethics is an important part of life and running a successful business is no exception to this. To become successful, a business needs to be driven by strong ethical values. The mindset of a businessman creates a mindset for his/her company, which in turn sets the work culture of the business organization. For a business to prosper and maintain its wealth, it ought to be founded on certain ethical principles. A business that is based on ethics can run successfully for long years. Moneymakers who do not heed to ethical values can only earn a short-lived success. To last long in the market, business ethics is essential.
