Ms Shollei said all the courts in Kenya would upload information on the sexual offences cases they had concluded and the fully loaded database would be officially commissioned on August 7.
The register will eliminate numerous cases where courts are forced to treat newly convicted persons as first-time offenders due to lack of information on their previous criminal records.
Such registers are used in many other countries including Britain and Canada. According to Legal Resource Foundationâs executive director Jedidah Wakonyo there are 897 sexual offenders in remands and 562 others convicted ones in 11 prisons.
Nairobi Womenâs Hospitalâs CEO Sam Thenya said during the post election violence in 2008 they treated 546 cases of sexual violence.
"We have all the DNA samples, the victims know their attackers, the evidence is still there and they are still waiting for justice," he said.
Mutunga said the criminal justice system had to work in harmony since the Judiciary alone could not be effective in dealing with sexual offences.
He said the entire criminal justice system had to be sensitive when handling sexual cases right from the police stations, hospitals, courts and even the rehabilitation institutions dealing with the offenders.
The CJ said the rules would be gazzetted as soon as consultations on them were completed.
Mutunga said the judiciary had embarked on training of judges and magistrates on handling sexual cases.
