June Wanjiru Mwangi and Dr. Grace Kimani
Efficiency in the management of court records has been a key issue of concern for the Kenyan Judiciary. Good records management practices are vital for timely administration of justice. This study sought to assess records disposal procedures for the Eldoret High Court. The study adopted quantitative research design; a structured questionnaire was used to collect data from a sample of 25 respondents drawn from the court registry. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. The study findings indicate that registry personnel are conversant with Records Disposal Act, Cap 14 which gives guidelines on the retention and disposal of records. The findings also indicate that records survey exercise is not carried out frequently as recommended in the Records Disposal Act, cap 14. The study is of great value towards improving the current management practice and in future research concepts.
