Lawyer Nelson Havi won the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) presidential elections held on Thursday.
Havi won against the three other contestants Harriette Chiggai, Maria Mbeneka and Charles Kanjama.
Lawyer Charles Kanjama conceded defeat and said “a bold and effective campaign that has captured the confidence of lawyers across the country.”
“I congratulate my classmate Nelson Havi on running a bold and effective campaign that has captured the confidence of lawyers across the country. I congratulate him on a race well run and, as a democrat, am happy to accept the will of the voters.
Under the current law, the LSK president holds the position for a single term of two years.
