The Judiciary has introduced a Family and Probate Division, a special branch that will be handling cases of divorce, parenting, child adoption, inheritance and succession among others.
In the past, such cases have been taking a long time to be administered due to work overload at the high court, hence the decision to introduce a special division at the court to handle the cases with special attention and specialty.
In an interview, High Court Registrar, Gladys Gondwe,Â said issues of divorce, child adoption, parenting and succession need to be handled with the specialty and honour they deserve as far as justice issues are concerned.
The High Court Registrar added that vulnerable groups in different societies have been negatively affected by delay, lack of efficiency and specialty in handling such issues.
Law expert, Gift Katundu hailed the effort of coming up with the Family and Probate Division, saying it will provide equal and fair justice to family legal matters.
