I met with the national commissioner yesterday to look at what we can do to make sure that we can restore confidence in some people. We met yesterday and looked at how we can Fastrack these cases,” said Batohi.

“We have a team of people giving specific attention to this case. We’re giving it very specific attention to get it to the courts,” she said. The country is still reeling from a spate of murders and attacks on women and children.
