Dear colleagues,

A year ago this month our colleague Willie Kimani, his client Josephat Mwendwa and taxi driver Joseph Muiruri were brutally murdered. Willie was tortured to death while in the course of duty. This month we remember Willie, Josephat and Joseph as we continue to condemn extra judicial killings.

In memory of Willie, Josephat and Joseph, the Law Society of Kenya together with IJM has organised a week long series of activities that will commence with a memorial Mass at the Consolata Shrine in Westlands Nairobi this Friday 23rd June 2017 from 9am. This will be followed by a public dialogue and memorial vigil at Uhuru Park from 12pm upto 8pm on the same date.

We urge you dear colleagues to kindly attend the Mass and the public dialogue and memorial vigil in memory of our colleague and to also participate in other activities that have been planned across all LSK branches between 23rd June upto 30th June 2017 as communicated in the LSK Newsletter and as shall be updated from time to time. Let us stand in solidarity for justice and the rule of law.
