The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) is calling upon the Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai and the Director, Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti to expedite the investigations into the disappearance of a High Court Advocate.
They are also demanding his production within the next 72 hours, failure to which the Society will take the necessary legal action.
In a statement Wednesday, LSK CEO Mercy Wambua says Mr. Benson Njau Kayai, an Advocate of the High Court and trading in the name and style of Njau Kayai & Company Advocates, was reported missing on 7th February 2021 at around 5:30pm and there has been delays in concluding the investigation into his disappearance.
“As the professional body tasked with ensuring the welfare of our members, we note with grave concern the extensive delay in the conclusion of investigation into the disappearance of our member. It has clocked 16 days from the day of reporting, without any valuable progress in investigations by the Police. This has caused great anxiety, while triggering speculation and suspicion, to both the family members and the membership of the Law Society of Kenya, as to the cause of the delay.” She said
According, to LSK, they took note of a missing person’s report circulating online and immediately reached out to the family and the Police for more information.
