About:

Journalists for Justice (JFJustice) is a non-partisan project administratively housed by the Kenyan Section of the International Commission of Jurists, ICJ Kenya, established in 2011 to promote the twin goals of:

(a) Combating all forms of impunity arising from the Post-Election Violence that afflicted Kenya in 2008 by promoting a balanced discussion of the international criminal justice system in the media and

(b) Advocating justice and reparations for victims. The project achieves these goals through public information programs on the work of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and other specialist tribunals; media training and outreach programs; radio programs, media monitoring and research, media advocacy, materials development and information dissemination activities and victim support programs.

The mission of JFJustice is: to promote robust public discussion of ways to end the impunity associated with violations of humanitarian law, advocate justice for all victims of international crimes; and, to work with other people of goodwill who share the same values.

  • Police Vetting and its challenges in Kenya - Chris Gitari
    Police Vetting and its challenges in Kenya - Chris Gitari Police Reforms And Police Vetting In Kenya: Auditing This Reform Agenda” The open forum seeks to audit the ongoing police reform agenda and to evaluate the efficacy of the police vetting process in contributing to the broad police reform agenda and especially in restoring public trust in the National Police Service. Is the NPSC, spearheading the vetting process, doing more to ensure that the public engages in a sustained manner? Is there a comprehensive communication strategy supported by appropriate infrastructure? What is the level of commitment by NPSC, NPS and top political leadership towards deep transparency and accountability in the process? Does the public feel that there is a clear eyed vision about the overall goal of the process? The forum will thus provide a platform for the various stakeholders to audit the status of implementation of police reforms agenda including the vetting process and to make suggestions towards strengthening both processes. Christopher Gitari is a human rights lawyer and an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya. He has extensive experience and training in constitutional and public law, transitional justice, and dispute resolution (mediation).
