Law Society Of Kenya(LSK) President Nelson Havi has said that he’ll be submitting a formal complaint to the Inspector General of police, and DCI over threats to his life.

Havi categorically mentioned ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna of being behind the murder threat.

The Law Society of Kenya Gitanga Road office could have passed for a busy open air market, as some lawyers voiced their opinions while shouting down those that opposed them at a meeting yesterday.

What should have been a housekeeping meeting of learned friends, as they fondly refer to each other turned into a heckling contest punctuated by thinly veiled insults as the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) suspended all 10 council members in a heated, chaotic convention.

The Special General Meeting (SGM) was called to discuss the appointment of auditors to probe LSK’s books of accounts, deliberate on an impeachment motion against Mr Havi, the suspension of some council members and the appointment of advocates to represent the lobby in court cases involving internal wrangles.

Months of infighting have split the LSK into two factions—one backing Mr Havi and another on CEO Mercy Wambua’s side.

Mr Havi dismissed the impeachment motion filed against him by lawyer Gad Aguko, just moments after members suspended the council.

The council oversights the LSK’s operations, just as boards of directors watch over companies.

Mr Havi made it clear that ongoing efforts to unite the two factions will likely not work, an indication that the fights at the society are a long way from over.

“We have listened to your calls that we unite. But you must realize the queer nature of this… We come here with differences. There has been interference and I’ve taken to the podium here and said who is interfering with the running of LSK. So don’t come and tell me to unite with those people,” Mr Havi said.

There was a scuffle when some members allied to Havi threatened to eject Mr Sifuna from the meeting.
