Findings
Recommendations
1 The project targeted principally the High Court and Magistrate?s Courts, with little attention paid to other key actors of the justice delivery system such as the Police and Prisons Services
2 Some of the equipment purchased for the project was not adequate to meet the needs of the partners for instance the generators procured for the magistrates courts had a low capacity and could not sufficiently power the courts. A proper assessment should have been carried out before the procurement was done.
