LSK 5-day court boycott to start tomorrow
Lawyers will boycott courts for five working days as from Monday to protest government’s brazen disregard of court orders and violation of the Constitution by senior public officers.
The Law Society of Kenya says the state has failed to obey court orders thus setting a bad precedence by failing to obey High Court orders by Justice Chacha Mwita to the government to restore signals for tv stations and the recent Miguna Miguna’s case where police defied court orders to release him.
The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Isaac Okero announced that they will keep off the courts to protest violation of the law by marching across the country wearing yellow ribbon.
Last week, the government ignored an order directing the Communications Authority of Kenya to put on signals for KTN, NTV, Citizen and Inooro TV that were shut down on January 30.
