LSK chair Mutua in hot water over election remark

13 March 2014, 21:54 William Korir

Nairobi - Law Society of Kenya chair Eric Mutua has appeared before the supreme court to answer to charges over a comment made during the March 2013 election petition.

Mutua appeared before the Supreme Court Thursday over remarks he allegedly made during the presidential petition.


Mr Mutua was initially summoned July last year over the comments he made in a petition filed by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga while contesting the election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The LSK chairman had challenged the order, claiming that he could not be summoned over a case that had been determined.

Mr Mutua was summoned over his criticism of the judges’ decision to strike out Mr Odinga’s allegations in the court documents despite the court’s directive stopping people from commenting on the petition outside the court.

The LSK chairman was quoted as saying that the decision to reject an 839-page affidavit from Mr Odinga could set a bad precedent for future rulings.

Supreme Court  judges had initially ruled that although a judgment had been delivered in the petition, they still reserved the right to summon anybody over the issue to protect the integrity of the court.

The judges had also rejected the lawyer’s claim that he was not the right party to be summoned because the alleged comments appeared in a section of the Media.
