MAMBO NI MATATU!! - LSK members tell off RUTO as they demonstrate over the President’s attack on Judiciary.

 Friday, January 12, 2024 - Members of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) on Friday held demonstrations in Nairobi over President William Ruto’s move to attack the judiciary.

As they danced on the streets of Nairobi with placards, the lawyers maintained that the president should respect the judiciary and its mandate. 

Vocal advocate, Ndegwa Njiru, who was among his colleagues was heard chanting 'mambo ni matatu' 

"Mambo ni mangapi?," he said as other lawyers joined in, 'Mambo ni matatu!" they said in unison. 

"Mambo ni matatu, heshimu mahakama, heshimu sheria ama uende nyumbani," Ndegwa said as he was joined by his colleagues. 

This is loosely translated to: There are three options; respect the courts, respect the law, or go home. 

Earlier, through his X account, Njiru said the march is for the freedom of judicial independence, and from threats to the judicial officers. 

The march was led by LSK President Eric Theuri with Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka also in attendance. 

While calling for its members to participate in peaceful protests, Theuri said it was in solidarity with the judiciary. 

"We call upon all members to don purple ribbons throughout the coming week and join in the peaceful protests countrywide that will be organised by the society in support of the rule of law and solidarity with the Judiciary," LSK president Eric Theuri said in a statement. 

"We must not allow our Constitution to suffer dereliction."
