My cousin was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for murder in the regional magistrate’s court. He was refused leave to appeal his conviction and sentence in the same court. So he petitioned the High Court for leave to appeal But this seems to be taking forever. It’s now almost 2 years since 2015. I understand some inmates have been waiting for as long as 4 years for their appeals to be heard. What do you advise I do to expedite the process?
