Narok court users yesterday joined their colleagues in the country to pay their tributes to fallen High Court Judge Lady Justice Beatrice Thuranira Jared who died in India while undergoing treatment a week ago.
The court users led by High court judge Justice Francis Gikonyo suspended the early morning court proceedings to mourn one of their own.
Gikonyo remembered the late as a self-motivated lady who was dedicated in her job in her time of service to build the nation.
Narok Chief Magistrate Samuel Mungai described Lady Thuranira as one of the most powerful judges the country had as she was committed to her work.
“She was a very powerful judge but at the same time a very humble judge. She was a distinguished lady who was committed to her work,” the chief magistrate added.
The Narok Office of the Director of Prosecution (ODPP) representative Sharon Koina recalled the late judge as a lady of integrity and great custodian of legal knowledge.
“We gather to mourn the death of a lady who was well known to us. We have lost a custodian of legal knowledge whom we will dearly miss,” lamented Koina.
Narok North sub county police commander Frederick Shiundu said he knew the late as a hardworking and very diligent lady, who demonstrated exceptional commitment to her work.
“We have all learnt positive things from the late judge which we will embrace in our various careers so that her legacy will continue being felt in many more generations,” he said.
Narok Children’s Director Pilot Khaemba recalled the special attention the late gave to all children cases brought before her court in the course of her service in the Judiciary.
“She has left us but her deeds will forever remain with us. We pray for her family members to have the peace of God,” said Khaemba.
Also present were representatives from the Narok law society, civil society and religious leaders.
