Speaking during the Annual Law Society of Kenya (LSK) Conference at Leisure Lodge Beach Resort in Diani, Kwale County Mr Maraga said that requests for adjournments in graft cases would only be granted in special circumstances.

The new move, he said, would facilitate a speedy completion of graft related cases which have flooded Anticorruption division in Nairobi.

"We cannot have corruption cases go on for years; read the public mood," he said on Thursday during the Annual Law Society of Kenya (LSK) Conference at Leisure Lodge Beach Resort in Diani, Kwale County.

He further said the cases will be dealt with daily and suspects will only be acquitted if there is no sufficient evidence.

He has lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta for the zeal in fighting graft, urging Kenyans to support the goodwill.

"Unless Kenyans of goodwill rise and say no to impunity, economies of other countries will prosper while ours go down," he observed.
