LSK attacks Taka, drops startling revelations and hints at a link between him and Raila

After Carlos Taka hit the headlines last week with his impassioned and emotional plea in a Malindi Law Court which was captured in a video that went viral of him attacking the court and calling it the most useless institution, the Law Society of Kenya Mombasa branch is now weighing in on the issue.

LSK Mombasa branch said that scathing criticisms that question the legitimacy of the courts not only lead to loss of confidence in the Judiciary but also erode the gains that were achieved over a long period of time and through hard effort.

Without mentioning names, the society said that Taka’s outburst was feeding from previous attacks on the Judiciary from top leaders in the country.

It is worth noting that in the recent past, Azimio leaders have launched scathing attacks on the courts and even questioning its nonpartisanship. This followed the Supreme Court’s September 5th verdict which upheld President-Elect William Ruto’s election victory.

In a strong-worded judgement, the Chief Justice Martha Koome dismissed Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Coalition Party’s case, referring to the lawyers arguments as ”hot air”.
In Taka’s famous video, he is seen shouting in court before Malindi Resident Magistrate Olga Onalo.
“I have spent more than one year in remand just because some witnesses failed to testify. This is the most useless court in the world,” he said.

The Judiciary has however since then come out to disclose that the said Taka, who had been charged on October 12, 2021, was offered a bond despite objections by the Investigating Officer.
The officer had told court that since Taka has no known place of residence and Identity Card, his availability in court if release would not be guaranteed.
“Despite this, the court upheld his right to bond and he was granted bond of Sh200,000 and a surety of like amount.

At his request, it was later reviewed and reduced to Sh150,000,” the statement from the Judiciary directorate of public affairs and communication said.
The statement further said the Prosecution had presented four witnesses to the stand, and only two were remaining.
