Nelson Havi, the LSK President has been suspended by members of the Council for the Law Society of Kenya, who have accused him of failing to properly lead the Law Society of Kenya. On Monday, eight members of the LSK Council resolved to suspend Mr. Havi
In a decision on Monday, eight members of the council said they have lost confidence in Mr. Havi’s leadership. The suspension will either be approved or disapproved in the next Annual General Meeting.
“In the interim, having lost confidence in him: no scintilla of confidence remaining, we acted to conserve the best interest of the members, the rule of law, public interest and the reputation of the society. Suspending him is a mammoth task but the interests of the members of the society outweighs his individual interests,” the council said in a statement.
Some of the reasons for his suspension, the Council says, are failing the leadership and integrity test, bringing dishonor and disrepute to the society and the dignity of office of its president, and causing it to lose face nationally and internationally.
Other accusations against him are suppressing the more than 3,000 members from voting online, resulting in a disastrous SGM that they said cost millions of shillings
