The 2010 Constitution ushered in a new era for governance in Kenya, with notable emphasis
on rights codified in the Bill of Rights under Chapter Four of the Constitution. It is against this
background that, under the auspices of the National Council on Administration of Justice
(NCAJ), the Legal Resources Foundation Trust (LRF) and Resources Oriented Development
Initiatives (RODI-Kenya) – with technical support from University of Western Cape South Africa
and financial support from Open Society Foundations – partnered to conduct an audit study on
Kenya’s Criminal Justice System. The focus was on pretrial detention with specific emphasis
on conditions of detention and case-flow management. The audit was commissioned by the
NCAJ Council on the 15th May, 2015 and thereafter conducted under the supervision of an NCAJ
National Steering Committee, comprising of members drawn from the various agencies of the
Criminal Justice System.
