The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has hired veteran lawyer Dr John Khaminwa to defend suspected killer cop Caroline Kangogo who is in hiding.

Khaminwa has been tasked with obtaining court orders barring police from arresting Kangogo when she surrenders.

Speaking to journalists at the Milimani Law Courts, Khaminwa urged Kangogo to surrender her firearm to Khaminwa Advocates offices in Mombasa, Nairobi, or  Malindi.

Khaminwa said that he has been given the mandate by LSK Chief Executive Officer Mercy Wambua, whose stay in office is uncertain following wrangles with LSK President Nelson Havi.

This comes after reports that rogue police officers could be protecting Caroline Kangogo, frustrating efforts of her arrest.
