Members of the Law society of Kenya Nairobi region have moved to have LSK President Allen Gichuhi removed from office.

The members through their representative Akusala A. Borniface , accuse Gichuhi of mismanagement of council, abuse of office and non-compliance with the council charter.

Gichuhi is also accused of permitting personal prejudices to interfere with the proper running of council, advancing interests of external forces as opposed to those of Members of LSK and single-handedly overruling the decision of Council and imposing his own.

In a memo seen by Kahawa Tungu directed to the Society’s Chief Executive Officer, the members asked a motion be passed to remove Gichuhi as LSK President during the council’s next meeting scheduled for February 18.

 

Consequently, the members moved that the Vice President to resume office as the acting President.

“Please include this motion in the meeting slated for 18th February, 2019… That by a Resolution of Council, Mr Allen Gichuhi be removed from the position of President. That in the interim the Vice President to act as President,” the memo reads in part.
