Court of Appeal and High Court Decisions on Commonly used Sections and Orders of the Civil Procedure Act and Rules (Cap 21 L.K)
In this Volume, the Majority of the Reported cases were decided in 1993 in the High court of Kenya while others were decided in the court of Appeal earlier on. This Book devotes itself wholly to the interpretation given by the courts to the various sections and orders of the Civil Procedure Act and Rules Cap 21. We have also included decisions on contempt of court as the law relating to committal to civil jail for contempt of court has been unclear and unstable due to it being related to the existing laws of England. In these decisions, the High court and the court of Appeal has given firm guidelines on how to determine whether one is guilty of contempt of court in a civil case. We would also wish to ;note that although we may have placed a case under one heading, many cases involve decisions involving various other sections other than the one shown under the heading or headnote and a cross reference is therefore necessary. This is provided for by our index. This Book is intended to be an update on the existing decisions by our courts on the civil procedure Act and Rules.
