Lawyer Nelson Havi is the new LSK President after winning elections


By Reporter

Lawyer Nelson Havi is the new president of the Law Society of Kenya.

Official results confirmed the provisional ones which had shown that Havi clinched the position following countrywide elections.

He will replace outgoing president Allen Gichuhi and serve a two-year term from 2020 to 2022.

The race attracted four candidates, two men and two women among them Nelson Havi, Maria Mbeneka, Charles Kanjama and Harriette Chiggai.

In a tweet, his competitor Charles Kanjama conceded defeat, congratulating him for a well-run race.

*Kanjama LSK Concession*

I congratulate my classmate Nelson Havi on running a bold and effective campaign that has captured the confidence of lawyers across the country. I congratulate him on a race well run and, as a democrat, am happy to accept the will of the voters.

Candidate Maria Mbeneka also conceded defeat. 

During the campaign period, Havi rode on the narrative to wake up the sleeping giant and return LSK to its glory days of fiery advocacy under the likes of Paul Muite and Willy Mutunga.

Below, is a list of LSK Presidents since the 1950’s.

By mailing them equipment, educational elements, free accounts, and forms, you become a strong ally. By taking a personal desire for them plus their problem, you generate a solid relationship that, on most occasions, pays off once the owners opt with a representative they know in addition to trust — preferably you.
