Nairobi - Kenyans on twitter and the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) have hit out at lawyer Cliff Ombeta for representing three police officers linked to the murder of lawyer Willie Kimani, his client and a taxi driver.
Law Society through advocate Ochieng Oduol hit out at Ombeta for representing people who are suspected of killing their colleague.
"This is a matter of national importance as the organs that are supposed to provide security are the one killing Kenyans. Lawyer Ombeta should know that it could also happen to him," he said.

Another Kenyan posted, "Cliff Judas Iscariot Ombeta is a mole; lawyers holding a countrywide boycott but chooses money over a good cause."
Ombeta on his twitter page defended his action saying that every murder suspect deserves to be represented by a lawyer.
"Are you saying the respondents should not have any representation in court? I did my duty," said the lawyer.
