Nelson Havi accuses DCI of shutting down the LSK offices

Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi has dismissed the notice over the shutting down of the society’s offices claiming that detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) were used by the state to lock down the offices.
According to a notice at the gate, the Law Society of Kenya offices were shut down on Friday, July 23, 2021 for fumigation exercise at the premise.
Havi, however has claimed that the move was initiated to block interviews that were scheduled to begin on Friday, July 23, 2021 at the LSK boardroom.
“It is notified for general information that the Council of the Law Society of Kenya will conduct interviews for the post of Director Compliance and Ethics and Director Practice Standards on July 23, 2021, at the boardroom of the secretariat at Gitanga Road,” the notice published in local dailies read.
The LSK President shared photos on Twitter where he maintained that the DCI was responsible for the shutdown of the LSK offices and the fumigation notice was just used as an excuse to interfere with the interviews.
“The State, acting through the DCI has locked up the offices of the Law Society of Kenya to prevent recruitment of Staff,” the LSK president statement read.
This comes after the LSK president was arrested by the DCI detectives and accused of assaulting the society’s CEO Mercy Wambua on Monday, July 12, 2021.
Wambua filed an assault complaint with the police accusing the LSK president of assaulted her during a meeting.
Havi dismissed the allegations accusing the CEO of forcing her way into the boardroom a meeting was ongoing. He further alleged that Wambua wanted to record the proceedings.
