I have been observing with deep concern the injustice done to the poor, the weak, the oppressed and afflicted citizens of the country.
So much human rights and legal rights are violated silently through the systems that should be protecting them.
This article is meant to bring this to light and suggest possible interventions to put the injustices to rest.
These judgements, most, if not all, are acquired by the plaintiff behind defendant’s back. Normally the plaintiff approaches the court and uses the shrewd messengers of court, under the pretext that they cannot locate the defendant. Judgment is then passed without the defendant exercising their constitutional right to defend themselves. In some cases the defendant will only hear about the judgement later, while in some cases they just get an attachment notice.
Why does the judicial system not come up with a database where all disputes are registered and in the event of someone approaching the court for judgement, in the absence of the other party, reference can be made to the database. Communities must be educated in all language on the existence of the database and how to access it.
