Mitigating Against Corona Virus (COVID19) at The Agency
Our Agency has put arrangements in place to protect the health of staff, clients and stakeholders during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought unique service delivery challenges for many justice institutions, and the Witness Protection Agency is no exception.
However, our Agency is committed to delivering justice safely during the pandemic.Our Agency continues to monitor the situation in Kenya and ensure our operations are fully compliant with the government’s preventive measures as they evolve.
Partnering with NCAJ members
We are an active member of the National Council on the Administration of Justice (NCAJ) and its ad-hoc COVID-19 Working Group. The Agency has been participating in discussions since March 2020 on appropriate response actions by the sector either collectively or as individual institutions. Key among the deliberations was the need to maintain vital services in line with specific mandate of the participating NCAJ institutions while preventing the spread of the virus among staff, clients and stakeholders.
The Agency has put in place adequate measures to ensure that our staff continue to provide witness protection services to our clients without compromising on their health and safety from the Covid-19 pandemic. These measures include body temperature checks, maintaining social distancing of 1.5 metres at all times, correctly wearing facemasks and providing hand sanitizers.
The Agency has also committed not to dismiss, discriminate or disadvantage any staff or client in any way with respect to their Covid-19 status.
WE continue to offer Witness Protection Programme in line with the guidelines and protocols issued by the NCAJ and the Ministry of Health from time to time.
