Officials of the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights, held an impromptu meeting yesterday with members of Voi District Court Users Committee at the Voi Law Courts, as part of a fact-finding tour of the Coast Province.

The Voi visit, whose main aim was to assess the challenges facing the Court Users Committees in the region, comes in the wake of the opening of a new Coast KNHCR Branch office based in Mombasa. Led by Mohamed Ruwange, the KNHCR officials recounted the historical origins of the Human Rights body established under an Act of Parliament in 2001. Previously, the human rights docket was handled by a Standing Committee set up specifically to deal with the subject within the Ministry of Justice.
