Kenyan parliament must pass a law to curb this kind of behavior involving lawyers. When lawyers in Kenya acts unethically on behalf of their clients, when the lawyers and other attorneys hired by the Kenyan citizenry are compromised and engage in public corruption, they undermine the rule of law and faith in the system. The image of lawyers is not just a matter of professional or personal pride; it affects the public’s belief in our justice system, and ultimately, our faith in our democracy.
This is the same kind of behaviour we have seen being displayed by Sen.Moses Wetang’ula who is also a lawyer by training. The Kenyan parliament needs to look into these two cases and determine if a new law is needed to protect the public from unethical lawyer.
