Leading Corporate Commercial lawyer now wants advocates who prosecute graft allegations outside the court room be barred from practice.
William Maema, a senior partner at Iseme Kamau and Maema (IKM) law firm, says a 5 year suspension of certificate should be imposed on such advocates.He says accusing Judges of graft without providing proof was akin to lynching the officers and said those driving this agenda against the Judicial Service Commission officers must be brought to book.”My fellow advocates, this unacceptable idea of punching a referee after losing a match must come to a halt”, he said in various tweets seen by Uzalendo News.
Earlier on, Leading Counsellor AhmedNasir Adbudallahi had sensationally tweeted that some Supreme Court Judges had been bribed to make a favorable ruling in a matter before the Supreme Court. He also said that he would write to the CJ David Maraga and provide evidence.
William Maema said that such grave allegations needed to be channeled through the Judicial Service Commission (JSC),
Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) ,Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
IKM is one of top 5 leading law firms in Kenya and recently it successfully defended the Government against a multi billion claim from a mining Company.
