The Judiciaries are the government's bodies responsible for interpretation and and application of laws guiding a country in cases and disputes. They are also given the power and authority to bring down unconstitutional laws.

The judiciary adjudicate in cases arising between citizens, corporate, governments and entities in their inter-relationships with one another within or outside the country in accordance with the law. They are also vested with the power of overriding any act of unconstitutional conduct exercised either by government or individuals. This government body is headed by the supreme court and it is the only court that the last appeal matters can arise.
