Kiswahili Translated Laws

Simplification and translation of laws is among the Law Reform Commission (LRCT) activities stipulated under the Law Reform Commission Act Cap. 171 [R.E 2002]. The LRCT is translating laws from English into Kiswahili, this activity commenced in 2008. To date the LRCT has translated Fifteen laws.

The main objective of translating laws is for easy understanding and usage by the members of public. Easy understanding of the law is an effective means for the administration of the law and the dispensation of justice since knowing your rights begins with full understanding of the legal process.
