Corruption has no place in the legal fraternity, says judge
By Karanja Njoroge
A High Court Judge has called on legal practitioners to expose those soiling the name of the profession.
Kisii High Court judge, Justice Daniel Musinga said the legal profession has been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons and needed to redeem its image.
"In almost all the corruption-related scandals there is mostly likely a lawyer involved while the Judiciary has been accused of incompetence, corruption, and lethargy," said the Judge.
Justice Musinga said greed and incompetence should not have a place in the legal fraternity.
Speaking at Kabarak University during the launch of the Kabarak School of Law, Musinga asked legal practitioners to blow the whistle on those tarnishing the image of the profession.
"All of us have a noble duty to stamp out corruption from this noble profession and the country," he added.
The founding Dean of Kabarak School of Law PLO Lumumba said the institution would be a law school with a difference, producing lawyers who are warriors of truth and justice.
He said there is need for competent and efficient legal services in a fast developing country like Kenya.
Former President Moi, who is the Chancellor of the university, said the institution would train a generation of just citizens who would enhance peace, love and unity in Kenya and the region.
"The launch of the Kabarak School of Law is a living testimony of a dream come true. I always looked forward to a situation where the youth would have an opportunity to pursue higher education and develop into great scholars and leaders for this country," he added.
The Vice-Chancellor Dankit Nassiuma said, since its inception, Kabarak University has continued to develop and offer academic programmes that are innovative and market driven.
Moi thanked the Commission for Higher Education for their role in the development of the university.
