Embattled Law Society of Kenya Chief Executive Officer Mercy Kalondu Wambua returned back to office Wednesday following her reinstatement by LSK council on Monday.
Nine out of the thirteen council members endorsed her reinstatement voting against a motion fronted by LSK president Nelson Havi seeking her removal from office.
The development now acting to diffuse leadership wrangles that has blighted the lawyers’ body in recent days.
The nine Council Members who had voted to reinstate the embattled CEO include; George Omwansa, Bernhard Ngetich, Riziki Emukule, Carolyne Mutheu, Faith Odhiambo, Aluso Ingati, Ndinda Kanyili, and Beth Michoma.
During Monday’s session, majority of the council members found that the allegations levelled against the CEO did not amount to gross misconduct and incompetence.
“The council resolved that the CEO, who was on suspension for the period between September 15, 2020, and October 19, 2020, return to work and resume her duties. We wish to confirm that the CEO has resumed her duties with immediate effect,” read a statement.
The members also hit out at LSK President Nelson Havi accusing him of an attempt to suppress dissenting opinion.
