"justice should not be delayed" "the purposes of this constitution should be protected." Court gave respondents directions as to the hearing. They expected respondents to issue their witnesses.
"given the imperatives of substantive justice.. we have decided to exercise our discretion in respondents' favor" This would be the last opportunity for the respondents. The 2nd of 3rd of October is set to receive the remaining witnesses.
If they do not show up, the court will make an adverse inference.

It’s a packed courtroom at Milimani Law Courts as we wait for the #NIIMSCaseDecision We’re hopeful 🤞🏾for a decision that affirms constitutional protections and fundamental rights to #privacy and due process
What’s at stake in the #NIIMSCaseDecision? The right to privacy (including freedom from undue surveillance), due process and public participation in law making, and the rights of marginalized and #stateless communities that have historically not benefited from citizenship
