Controversy shrouds appointment of new LSK CEO

28 January 2016, 19:50

Nairobi -  The appointment of a new Law Society of Kenya LSK CEO is not going according to plan with controversy looming over the apparent choice.

Council member Dennis Mosota has accused vice president Lillian Omondi and council member Jennifer Shamallah of trying to sabotage the process, The Standard reports.

Chief executive Apollo Mboya, who is expected to leave office in February after serving his term, has also been sucked into the controversy.

In a letter to chairman Eric Mutua, Mosota reads mischief in the process.

“The design by a section of the council and the outgoing CEO to put in place a person in the seat of the Secretary/ CEO through an obscure process is self- serving and it is despicable beyond belief,” the letter reads.

However, in a rejoinder on The Star, Omondi, who has been accused of favouring Jemimah Keli despite being ranked at position two, dismissed the allegations as false.

“The council is yet to have its meeting in February as has been directed by the president in a message to me. That is the correct position,” she said on Thursday.

Mutua did not respond to confirm or deny this. Mboya and Shamallah were equally unavailable for comments.

Ms Mercy Wambua who has been the deputy CEO at the society emerged top to take over from Apollo Mboya whose term ends next month.

Candidates who had applied for the position include Ronald Oyagi, Ms Wambua, Beatrice Chelangat, Jemimah Wanza Keli, Grace Nekoye Katasi, Justus Wabuyabo, and Damary Ayuka.
