Dissolution: LSK to lead Kenyans in occupying parliament from next week


The Law Society of Kenya has vowed to lead Kenyans from Monday next week to force the President to dissolve Parliament.

LSK President Nelson Havi on Wednesday said the President has no option but to send MPs home saying Chief Justice David Maraga's advisory is final and should be effected.

"We will proceed in civil permissible numbers. All Kenyans who want to exercise their right to do so within the confines of the law," Havi said.

In a joint press briefing with United Green Movement at the society's headquarters, Havi said President Uhuru has up to October 12 to dissolve parliament.

"Parliament must be dissolved or occupied effective October 12, 2020," Havi said.

"We make this call not only because CJ has asked for the dissolution of parliament. There are many reasons. As we speak the Cabinet is unlawfully constituted."

He was accompanied by UGM leaders ex Ndhiwa MP Neto Augostino and former Nairobi governor Jonathan Mweke.

"On the 12th October 2012 by 2.30 pm we will issue a notice to vacate to the two clerks and the speakers," he added.

The leaders said they will be traversing the country to mobilise Kenyans to support the push for Parliament dissolution ahead of Monday.

"We are law-abiding citizens and UGM believes in non-violence. The CoE report anticipated that parliament would go rogue. UGM alongside LSK did issue a notice to vacate since they are illegally occupying our house," Neto said.
