Lawyer Ambrose Weda Speaks Hours After Nelson Havi Joined DP William Ruto's UDA Ahead of 2022 Polls

The decision by the Law Society of Kenya President, Nelson Havi to join the deputy president William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party is still eliciting mixed reactions among Kenyans.

Havi is eyeing Westlands constituency parliamentary seat to succeed the incumbent, Timothy Wanyonyi who is eyeing Nairobi governor seat.

However, according to vocal lawyer, Ambrose Otieno Weda, Nelson Havi's decision to publicly align himself to a given political party was ill advised considering that he is still the Law Society of Kenya president.

Weda through his social media platforms added that Law Society of Kenya is a sacred institution for lawyers and Havi ought to have waited until his term expires before taking such actions.

"It is not decent for a sitting LSK president to join partisan political party politics and engineering," Weda said.

His statement comes even after Nelson Havi maintained that he will be representing clients who are not aligned to the United Democratic Alliance party of the deputy president William Ruto.
