Yesterday, LSK member Charles Midenga in a letter to the lawyers body accused Nelson Havi of gross conduct in the removal of CEO Mercy Wambua amongst others.
The lawyer wants LSK president Nelson Havi ejected from the Lawyers body during a special general meeting slated for December 5.
Havi and Wambua have been embroiled in a power battle, with the former insisting the latter was sacked over gross misconduct, but the latter has stayed put, with the board backing her.
Pending the election of a substantive president, Midenga has appealed that the members do elect an Interim President to temporarily preside over the Council’s deliberations and oversee the transition from the removed president.
The member of LSK has also accused Havi has blatantly violated the foregoing provision of the Act and the Constitution.
Wambua’s fate was decided by a majority of nine members, after finding no grounds to remove from the office, hence allowing her to continue discharging her mandate.
According to the lawyer, the LSK president has purported to seek her removal from office, despite the decision from the majority side.
“On November 10, 2020, the President without any justification whatsoever further published a misleading and unprofessional “public notice” via his official Facebook page.”
The LSK member has further accused Havi of using underhand tactics to frustrate the operations of the Secretariate and the Council by allegedly ganging up with Carolyne Kamende Daudi, who is the Vice-Chairperson of the Society.
According to the lawyer, Kamende has refused to sign cheques, hence contributing to negligence and financial probity of members’ funds.
“The council members are currently meeting and discharging their mandate to the society from their own pockets due to unpaid Council expenses.”
Without following the laid down procedures, Havi has also been accused of contravening procurement policies by purporting to appoint an auditor.
Havi has been indicted for imposing Mark Obar as LSK ICT consultant and imposing Proscene Company as LSK Audio Visual Services.
Not just that, Havi has also been blamed for failing to comply with the Council’s Annual General Meeting resolutions.
