Chief Justice Martha Koome has assured the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) of working closely in a bid to strengthen the operating protocols at all Judicial services at Huduma Centres to deter lawyer masqueraders.

Speaking during a meeting with the lawyer’s body top officials on Thursday, March 7, 2023, Koome vowed to deal with any person attempting to masquerade as an advocate to avoid exploitation of the public at the assisted filling desks at the Huduma centers.

“I am a firm advocate of the independence of the Bar. I believe that the Bar must not be infiltrated. We can however find mechanisms to secure the integrity of the profession without isolating the poor and indigent,” CJ Koome stated.

She has affirmed that the Judiciary is ready to listen to and work with LSK to implement and enforce measures that will go a long way in strengthening operations of the Huduma Desks and comply with the orders of the High Court in the Kituo Cha Sheria case.
