Legal Cost

New legal state fees released

As the country goes into the elections, the courts will be flooded with election petitions from disputed election returns after the return of writs.

Annually, it costs the state around K15 million to K16 million on matters involving state institutions, including the Electoral Commission.

Secretary of the Department of Justice & Attorney General Secretary, Dr Lawrence Kalinoe, said the new fee structure will ensure that the costs are manageable.
