CRUSADING JOSEPH JIBUEZE

Winner, JUDICIAL REPORTING, AT THE 24TH DAME


For Joseph Jibueze, winning is becoming second nature. He won the Judicial Reporting last year. He has won it again this year. His winning work, which was published in two parts, makes a strong case for judicial reforms in our criminal justice administration. Jibueze’s reports a halt to abuse of court processes through frivolous interlocutory appeals which result in prolonged trials and make a mockery of the well known dictum that Justice delayed is Justice denied. The report further calls for a strong judiciary managed by knowledgeable people who should be shielded from incompetent accusations by ill prepared practitioners who clutch to every technicality to shield their clients from the weight of the law.

At the Nation where he plies his trade, he is a senior correspondent who covers the courts and assists in editing and producing an eight-page weekly Law section. He was previously a political reporter with National Mirror, and African Travel Quarterly.
