New efforts have been rolled out to enhance the capacity of mediators to help reduce the number of cases going to courts.
This was announced in Kigali at the opening of a three-day seminar bringing together US mediators, Rwandan justice stakeholders and lawyers on Wednesday.
“People are only aware of grassroots level mediation handling disputes but are not aware of professional mediation at high-level that can handle critical or big disputes which really works in other countries. We want to move to professional mediation to reduce the number of disputes referred to courts. It saves money and time invested by people involved in such disputes,” Chief Justice, Professor Sam Rugege, said .
