The Law Society of Kenya executive officer Apollo Mboya who was suspended by chairman Kenneth Akide has now been reinstated. The decision was arrived at during a stormy council meeting.
"The chairman failed to convince the council forcing the members through a majority vote to expunge the letter and quash the decision," said a member of the council.
Mr Akide, who chaired the meeting, could not be reached for comment yesterday, as he was said to be in court for the hearing of a case where a lawyer has sued the council for dropping his motion to discus the LSK leadership.
Last week, Akide suspended Mboya citing insubordination and misconduct. He locked the CEO’s office only for the suspended official to storm the premises hours later and break in to continue working.

The council is embroiled in a leadership tussle. The council is preparing for an AGM, scheduled for next week, but already divisions have cropped over motions to discuss the chairman and his deputy, Florence Kajuju. Lawyer Tom Ochieng moved to court last week seeking no confidence motions discussed at AGM.
