Lawyers to boycott court for a week

The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has announced a week long boycott of court proceedings to protest rampant ignorance by state and public officials of court directives.

The lawyers who will only attend to election petition cases will also hold protest marches around the country.

“The court boycott shall be for one week commencing from the 12th, February 2018 to the 16th February 2018 but will exclude election petitions most of which are almost concluding and are subject to strict timelines,” said the Society in a statement to newsrooms.
