A majority of Kenyans trust the justice system in the country but decry that it treats people unequally, including often granting impunity to officials who commit crimes, according to an Afrobarometer survey.
While the Constitution provides that all persons are equal before the law, more than half of Kenyans say that’s not the reality. Large majorities say officials who commit crimes often go unpunished, but the same is rarely true for ordinary people who break the law. Despite this reservation, more than half of Kenyans express trust in the courts of law.
