Justice and Constitutional affairs Minister Eugene Wamalwa will Tuesday afternoon introduce a motion in parliament seeking to extend the mandate of the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission.
Wamalwa says the commission has been compiling its report since February to beat the August 3rd deadline but has been unable to do so due to what he termed outstanding tasks.
Speaking to journalists at his office after TJRC presented its progressive report, the minister cited applications for reparations, amnesty and undertaking of reconciliation amongst affected communities and groups as key issues that need considerable time.
Wamalwa who regretted the delay in completion of the commission's work expressed optimism that parliament will grant an extension to enable TJRC give a comprehensive report that will ensure justice to the victims.
He also admitted wrangles within the commission played a role in delaying to the report.
"The commission lost considerable time due to various challenges including court cases. It has been hard working hard to recover the lost time and has recovered considerable ground," he said.
