The Law Society of Kenya faulted President Uhuru Kenyatta’s move to confer Senior Counsel title to 24 advocates.
According to the LSK, the President should not have bestowed the rank to the lawyers since the matter on their appointment is in court.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta acted with impunity in conferring rank of Senior Counsel on the 24 Advocates. The dispute on their recommendation for conferment is still pending in Court,” the statement by LSK read.
“We will abide by the outcome of the mediation that ensured therefrom whose report is expected soon,” it continued.
LSK President Nelson Havi stated that he would raise an issue on the credibility of some of the members of the committee that sat for the selection.
