The President of the law society of Kenya Mr Nelson Havi has indicated that beginning 19th May,2020, all Advocates with practising certificates will be required to have special identification card, printable from the Advocates online portal.
An idea which have been supported by the Majority of advocates in Kenya including kitui’s celebrated advocate Mr Morris Kimuli.
This is meant reduce the risk of an imposter manufacturing one with his photo and particulars, Advocates need to ensure that their online particulars have their recent photo. Officers in doubt can just click and confirm, Mr Morris Kimuli added.
However, I strongly suggest that LSK includes our phone numbers in the online details and makes this card searchable online so that those in doubt can see, at the click of a button, what is online and compare it with the card they have been shown, He added.
