Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony receives Chief Justice David Maraga.

Chief Justice David Maraga has announced that a three-judge Bench will be constituted to hear and determine a Sh87 billion case against the Kenya Tea Development Authority (KTDA) that stalled five years ago.

In the case, Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony wanted the constitutional court to compel the agency to refund the money it had taken from farmers.

Speaking in Kericho when he paid the Governor a courtesy call, Justice Maraga said the three-judge Bench would be constituted immediately. "The file is in my office and we are currently studying it with a view of constituting a Bench to hear it," said Justice Maraga.

The case has been pending since 2014.
