Alternative dispute resolution ensures that dispute is dealt with in a thorough, confidential manner, and parties are satisfied with the arbitral award saving you time, resources, and negative publicity. This has also been encouraged under Article 159 (2) (c) of the Constitution of Kenya (2010), the Arbitration Act (1995) and the Civil Procedure Act and Rules (2010).
Section 35 of the Arbitration Act No. 4 of 1995 provides that an arbitral award is final and can only be set aside by the High Court if the Court is satisfied that the process was flawed as outlined in section 35 ( 2). Accordingly, where the arbitration process is done with strict obedience to the Act, the arbitral award is final.
