LSK withdraws Cliff Ombeta’s practising licence
The Law Society of Kenya has withdrawn Cliff Ombeta practising licence.
Confirming the withdrawal on Thursday, Stephen Ongaro representing the LSK expressed their reservation on how Ombeta has handled the Willie Kimani’s murder trial.
“His licence has been withdrawn and now he is not qualified to practice law,” said Ongaro
Appearing before Justice Jessie Lessit, Ongaro said Ombeta does not have enough LSK points to practise law in the country.
Ombeta was not in court on Thursday for the Willie Kimani murder case.
Ombeta has however defended himself saying he has a valid licence.
Through lawyer Doreen Kali, Ombeta said he is validly registered as a lawyer dismissing the LSK reports.
He maintained that Ombeta is still on the register as a lawyer.
Last month, Ombeta yet again failed to appear in court for the mention of the murder trial where he represents three accused persons.
Ombeta had shown up in court, donning a sweatpant he was sick and wad was unable to handle the case without disclosing the ailment.
