A world-class Court dispensing quality justice for a prosperous Community


To contribute to regional Integration by ensuring adherence to justice, rule of law and fundamental rights and freedoms through the interpretation and application of and compliance with the East African Community Law.


Court grants a Claim filed by the EAC Staff Mr Anjimbi a Senior Procurement Officer, faulting the Secretary General of the East African Community for his suspension from office over work related issues. The Court ruled that the Secretary General's suspension was unlawful, unjust, discriminatory, unwarranted and disaproportionate. Court also declared that the SG violated the Claimant's employment rights under the Staff Rules and Regulations. That a 15 months delay in concluding the investigation is clearly un acceptable. That a simple in-house investigation would have sufficed to explore any reservations or recommendations that may emanate from processes of EALA.

Court awarded General damages for moral, non- material or non-precuniary injury arising from his prolonged suspension USD 10, 000 with a simple interest at 6% p.a from the day of the judgment till payment in full.

The suspension is rescinded immediately with the Respondent (SG) being at liberty to continue his investigation.
