LSK ready to storm parliament on Monday

The President of the  Law Society of Kenya, Nelson Havi, has confirmed that they have served the Speakers and Clerks of National Assembly and Senate with a notice to occupy Parliament Buildings on Monday afternoon.

The move is the latest push by the LSK to have President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve the Parliament as advised by Chief Justice David Maraga on September 21.

Maraga issued the advisory to the president after the parliament failed to implement the 2/3 gender rule.

LSK has also copied the notice to Inspector General of Police to provide the necessary security and facilitation into the Parliament Buildings on Monday at 2.30 pm.

“Please make arrangements to host the representatives who will not be 20 in number,” LSK notice reads.

LSK argues that parliamentarians will have ceased to exercise their legislative powers on behalf of Kenyans.
Havi insisted that Mps would have become illegitimate and trespassers by Monday and the President must send them home for failing to enact the two-thirds gender requirement.
The rule stipulates that not more than two thirds of any public elected or appointed body shall be of the same gender.
“The People of Kenya must know that: President Uhuru Kenyatta against whom the advice by the Chief Justice is directed is not a party to the cases in which stay was granted; LSK is also not a party and subject to the order; and on 7.10.2020, Justice Korir declined a request by Parliament to stop the entry,” Havi said.
He stressed that the President has until Monday, October 12, to dissolve Parliament.
Other who have vowed to be part of the delegation include representatives from the United Green Movement (UGM) of Kenya,

UGM also argues that the High Court case by the Executive seeking to stop the president from sending the Mps home is an attempt to subvert the constitutional order to ensure politicians are not held accountable.
