Jubilation has filled the Supreme Court of Kenya this Morning as Chief Justice David Maraga has admitted 205 qualified lawyers to the Roll of Advocates.
In an event attended by the President of Law Society of Kenya Mr Allen Gichuhi, the Acting Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, the Registrar of the High Court, Members of the Bar, parents, and family, the Chief Justice urged the new Advocates to uphold the rule of law and administration of justice.
