To @NelsonHavi: Never, ever, be intimidated by desperate attempts of the Impunity Merchants. They have already lost. The Majestic People of Kenya know that you are on their side and the Impunity Merchants are their enemies. Whatever they do will not succeed. Let's remain focused!

The outspoken LSK boss was nabbed at the LSK offices on Gitanga road and whisked away over accusations that he assaulted the society’s suspended CEO Mercy Wambua.
Wambua on Monday alleged that Havi assaulted her during a meeting at the LSK offices.
The embattled CEO, in the company of her lawyer Steve Ogolla, recorded a statement at the Muthangari Police Station stating that Havi accosted her in the boardroom where she was to have a meeting.
Havi, on the other hand, dismissed the assault claims blaming Wambua for interrupting an ongoing meeting at the boardroom with an intention of eavesdropping and secretly recording the proceedings.
He insisted that Wambua is a trespasser at LSK offices as a decision had been made during a special general meeting on June 26 to send her on compulsory leave with full pay.
Wambua has since however obtained conservatory court orders to block any arbitrary ejection from office.
Havi, in a tweet posted on Monday night, accused the LSK CEO of shielding two of his former predecessors from liability over the alleged plunder of hundreds of millions of the society’s funds.
Theft is theft! It is no less if committed by a woman. Mercy Wambua is shielding her principals, two immediate former Presidents of LSK from liability for plunder of hundreds of millions. Falsely shouting through paid journalists that ‘Nelson Havi assaulted me’ won’t help. ^POLSK
