The outgoing leadership of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has been faulted for not fighting for the rights of Kenyans to ensure they get justice at the Judiciary.

Nandi Governor Stephen Sang said the leaders failed by not pushing for the implementation of infrastructural projects and delivery of service in the corridors of justice.

The governor made the remarks after participating in the LSK North Rift chapter elections on Thursday

“Kenyans have nothing to celebrate over the current leadership of LSK because they never advocated for the rule of law nor fought against impunity being perpetrated by those serving in county and national governments,” said Sang.

He claimed Kenyans had nothing to be proud of about the outgoing society leadership as it failed to advocate for the rule of law and fight impunity that he alleged was being perpetrated by those serving in the county and national governments.

Sang claimed that many times the government and those serving under the same in senior positions ignored court orders and the society  never raised a voice to ensure the rule of law is respected.

“Since the handshake between former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta the country has been left with no opposition to check on the government’s abuse of power, “he further claimed.

Sang advised new LSK office bearers led by LSK President Elect Mr. Nelson Havi to ensure the rule of law is respected by all irrespective of their status.

The chapter members drawn from Iten, Kapsabet, Kapenguria and Kitale towns started casting their vote from 9am. The elections were supervised by the Independent Electoral and Boundary commission presiding officer Jane Gitonga.
