A term that i have heard for a while, especially in movies, so i decided to find out what its all about.

Jury Duty:
Obligation of a citizen to serve on a jury when called. One of the highest duties of citizenship, it accrues from the constitutional right to be tried by a panel of one's peers and involves direct participation in the administration of justice. When summoned for a jury duty, a citizen must appear before the court or be tried for contempt of court.

The system works in the the US of A, Australia and New Zealand just to mention a few. Hey even Donald Trump attended Jury duty yesterday (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/08/17/trump-benched-for-day-reports-to-jury-duty/ )

If Jury duty was mandatory in kenya, how many of you would attend lets say be a juror in cases involving Powerful individuals, Convicted thugs & Murderers just to mention a few.

:D I'd rather move to mexico! Who cray enough to be in the jury at a trial like, say, Kabogo's or Harun Mwau?

NUH UH! f**k DAT!
Worse is snitching on dirty cops. And most cases of robbery with violence you normally find that the victims usually even fear identifying their attackers for fear of retribution.
Mexico is a bad location, from what i see on National Geographic, on drug cartels, gangs the akina zetas, maravilla and the likes whose way of intimidation is beheading, castrations and other macabre ways of dealing with traitors i wouldn't go even if it was a free holiday. Mexico has a federal government so i am sure they use the jury system.

Bias would be like coffee in the court house. You secretly tell me to vouch for you in the dock but I turn around on ya because you filled the clothing line with your bras when I was doing my washing.

I understand that you can also disqualify yourself,.does that mean you will be banned for life from serving jury duty.
Nope! They simply place you in the unending pool of qualified candidates for another selection. They may recall you for other cases.
