Social media users react after Kenyans leave racist law firm en masse

Partners: Philip Coulson, David Mpanga, Rob Legh, Ezra Davids & Paras Shah in Mumbai

If you type the word ‘Bowmans Kenya’ on the Twitter search bar and click enter, the search results will show you the rot.

Top lawyer Donald B. Kipkorir says that international law firms setting base in Kenya are usually still controlled by foreigners contravening the Advocates Act.

“The Myth of big law firms in Kenya: They are owned by foreigners against Advocates Act, Black Kenyan partners are partners in name only to hoodwink clients. Black lawyers don’t have access to the firm’s Bank Accounts. COVID19 was used to layoff most lawyers”, Donald Kipkorir wrore.

Payslip discrimination

The South African-born firm Coulson Harney LLP, Advocates (Bowmans) is accused of committing payslip discrimination. From the search described above, one can see tweets that talk about wage bill extortion. Bowmans law firm is one of the firms accused of perpetrating this practice.

In Kenya, Bowmans has been accused of racial discrimination and bad work practices mostly targeting black Kenyan staff.

Because of these, six partners are expected to exit with at least 10 associates. The six are, Anthony Njau, Sean Omondi, Njau Mukuha, Muthoni Runji and Christine Kamami, according to WhatsApp messages seen by cnyakundi.com

This exodus has left the litigation department with only 2 partners. The department that handles the oil and gas business has been wiped clean, and tax too.

The managing partner, Richard Harney is retiring too. Many staff at the firm are said to be very unhappy with the goings-on. Paras Shah, just like all Asians who are fond of racism is taking over.
