Law Society of Kenya (LSK) chief executive Mercy Wambua was yesterday required police escort to gain entry into her office after the society’s president Nelson Havi locked her out.

Havi is said to have arrived at the LSK headquarters early in the morning and instructed guards not to let Ms Wambui in on grounds that he had sacked her last month.

Upon arrival, Ms Wambui is said to have sought the intervention of police who escorted her to her office with Havi making a retreat.

Meanwhile, Havi is reported to have sought the intervention of one of the Senior Counsel members to mediate between him and Ms Wambui.

Havi is said to have spent the better part of yesterday afternoon in the office of the Senior Counsel discussing the matter.

But when contacted, Havi downplayed the issue, and instead accused the media of blowing the wrangles at the LSK out of proportion.

“The differences in the LSK is quite a small matter that should not concern anybody.

Why don’t you people look for something else to report on,’ he suggested.

Earlier on Tuesday, senior members began attempts to reconcile Ms Wambui and Havi with names of former Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga, Ahmednassir Abdullahi, Tom Ojienda, Lee Muthoga, John Ohaga and George Oraro, among others being floated.
