The Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi is set to be closed on Friday to allow for disinfection.

This measure, according to a public notice by the Registrar seen by Citizen TV, is only to ensure the safety of the court users.

The court premises will hence be disinfected on May 28 and May 29, 2021.

Normal services will thereafter resume on May 31, 2021.

The Milimani Law Court’s Family Division was on March 11 closed for one week after three staff tested positive for COVID-19.

“The Judiciary will not be spared the effects of this contagion. Our key imperative in the circumstances is the health and safety of all our staff, court users and their families,” Deputy Chief Justice, then Acting CJ, Philomena Mwilu said then in a statement.

“We are all aware of the exacting toll this pandemic and the measures to curb it are having on the justice system, court users and the wider society. However,  I reiterate the statement by the Honourable Cabinet Secretary for Health that despite the toll and weariness, we must not let our guard down.”

Last year, the Milimani Law Courts was temporarily closed after staffers experienced symptoms similar to those of the novel coronavirus.
