The Law Society of Kenya has filed a petition challenging the new security measures issued by the National Security Advisory Council (NSAC) and ratified by the Cabinet to regulate public gatherings.
The president of the law society of Kenya Senior Counsel Mr Nelson Havi “Akuku” want the regulations declared unconstitutional, the COUNTY DIARY Has Learnt.
Among the measures issued out last week is a requirement that leaders intending to hold a public gathering must notify the Officer Commanding Station (OCS) of such intent 3-14 days before gathering.
Among the orders the Law Society of Kenya is seeking include orders restraining the Inspector General of Police, acting by himself or agents under his command.
Seeking a license to holding public gatherings should not be left to the police alone, the police should be notified of the intended meeting for them to provide security, Havi has said.
