Nelson Havi has ignored an active Court Order barring him from replacing the Chief Executive Officer Madam Mercy Wambua from the council.
In a new move expected to fuel temperatures within the LSK, the president declared new appointments which are all against the order issued by the High Court.
The Employment and Labor Relations court had ordered the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi not to eject embattled CEO Mercy Wambua.
High Court Judge Maureen Odero said that LSK cannot appoint a new CEO until the hearing of the case in which Wambua is challenging Havi’s decision to replace her citing previous orders barring him from interfering with her incumbency.
“In the meantime there shall be a status quo as at the time of issuance of these orders pending inter parties hearing of the application meaning that the position of the applicant be and is hereby preserved pending inter parties hearing on 29 July,” the judge said in a letter dated 23 July.
However, Nelson Havi has also replaced the Director Compliance and Ethics/Deputy Secretary of Council and CEO appointing Juliette Akoth Jakaila.
The new Director Practice and Standards is Veronicah Achieng Odipo according to the President of the Law Society of Kenya.
"Law Society of Kenya has made the following appointments: 1. Secretary of Council and CEO: Josephat Mutunga Mutisya; 2. Director Compliance & Ethics/Deputy Secretary of Council & CEO: Juliette Akoth Jakaila; and 3. Director Practice & Standards: Veronicah Achieng Odipo. "POLSK
