  • Request for and issuance of summons to enter appearance, notice to appear in divorce cases, extracted court orders, decrees, certified and uncertified proceedings, copy of ruling/judgment.
  • Request and issuance of mention dates.
  • General case inquiries.

Once the pilot phase is completed the Judiciary is expected to roll out the 8 court services to the rest of 52 Huduma Centres across the country and later in all Huduma Jitume Centres in the 290 constituencies once they are constructed under a partnership with MPs, the Ministry of ICT and Digital Economy and my ministry.

However, Lawyers who are against introducing court services in Huduma centers have gone to court to oppose the move, arguing that publication participation was not done before implementing the policy.
