LSK Council Turns on Nelson Havi, Reappoints CEO

The Law Society of Kenya Council on Monday, October 19, reinstated suspended Chief Executive Mercy Kalondu Wambua.

In the press statement, the Council also put on notice the LSK President Nelson Havi over his conduct which it termed as illegal and disrespectful.

“We would like to assure the membership and general public that the issue of the CEO has been resolved. We urge the President to respect the council members, democracy and majority decision,” the statement reads in part.

CEO Kalondu was suspended in September 15 this year over allegations of gross misconduct and incompetence.

However, the LSK council reversed the decision stating that the charges levelled against her did not hold water.

The Council further hit out at Havi accusing him of attempting to veto their decision to reappoint Kalondu as the CEO.

“It is important to note that the President unlawfully and unjustifiably walked out on the Council members alleging that he was going to write a judgement alone and deliver the same on October 19, 2020.”

“The President does not have any power to veto the decision taken by a majority of the Council members,” reads the statement.
