Judge wants people who sleep with sex workers to be arrested
A candidate for position of Supreme Court judge has told the Judiciary Service Commission (JSC) that people who have sex with prostitutes should be arrested.
As it is, only prostitutes are usually targeted by police during swoops.
Lady Justice Martha Koome told the commission on Monday that in issues of prostitution both parties should be arrested.
“Prostitution is a social problem and we agree its demand driven,” Lady Justice Koome said.
“If there is no demand, there will he no service,” she said.
On the two gender rule and achieving the threshold in elective posts, she said a lot sensitization should be done.
She said nominations are a costly economic burden.
“If we don’t elect women, then they will be nominated which is an economic burden,” she said.
Mrs Koome also agreed that justice in Kenya is very expensive owing to high legal fees, lack of courts, and Kenyans not being aware of the law.
