Oct 13th, 2020 – Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi has been left fuming, at media reports that played down his ‘occupy parliament initiative’ that ended up being a cordial meeting with the clerk of the national assembly.
Photos also emerged of Havi and other lawyers taking tea, at the National Assembly, contrary to the earlier plans to storm the parliament, and demand for its dissolution in line with Chief Justice David Maraga’s advice to the President.
On his twitter handle, Havi slammed media reports adding that his group had a meeting with the House leadership on the way forward.
“The clerk of the National Assembly has indicated to us they have forwarded this matter to court and for that reason, they will abide with the outcome of the court,” said Havi after the meeting, however, added, “I will be frank, I do not believe any word they have said.”
Havi maintained that the protest was not to be chaotic but, to make a point but some MPs led by Homabay Woman Representative, who ridiculed the whole process terming it a Tangatanga Project.
Chief Justice David Maraga advised President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve parliament for failing to implement the two third gender rule as stipulated in the 2010 constitution.
