N v. N (Court of Appeal at Nairobi): Judgment on Divorce Adjudicated by Sectarian Tribunals

Nurani v. Nurani was a case adjudicated by the Court of Appeal at Nairobi in 1982. The Court held it had concurrent jurisdiction with the Ismaili Council for Kenya, through its sectarian tribunal. Thus, this tribunal had the first right to issue a decision on issues arising from the couple's divorce since both the husband and wife had submitted to its jurisdiction. In this decision, the Court contextualized the role of the sectarian tribunal within the context of Kenya's pluralist legal system.
