Protests as Kenyan lawyers boycott court


Lawyers in Kenya today begin a week-long boycott of court attendances to protest killing of their colleague Willie Kimani, his client and a driver.

Kimani was killed alongside his client Josephat Mwenda and a taxi driver Joseph Muiruri over a suspected tussle with Police officers and their bodies were dumped in the river.

Isaack Okero (Chairperson Law Society of Kenya) has written to various judicial divisions notifying them of the one-week boycott that is aimed at paralysing court operations across the country.
