Erick Theuri is the new president of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) after garnering 1,811 votes in the Thursday elections.

The former LSK Nairobi branch chairperson emerged victorious ahead of outgoing Vice President Carolyne Kamende and Omwanza Ombati who came third.

Theuri now takes the place of outgoing LSK boss Nelson Havi who ventured into politics to seek the Westlands Parliamentary seat.

He thanked the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for conducting a credible process.

Theuri further appreciated his competitors for conceding defeat.

“All glory to God. Thanks, my worthy competitors for a race well ran and conceding defeat. We forge forward,” he said.

In his victory speech the advocate said he will strive to bring the society back to its glory and accommodate everyone in the system.

Havi was among those who congratulated Theuri promising to offer guidance and support.

“My friend Theuri Eric Njeru, the weight of public office will for 2 years weigh heavily on shoulders as the 50th President of LSK. Unlike my predecessor, I will let you work and support you should you require my counsel. May you succeed where I failed and improve on what I did,” Havi stated.

Faith Adhiambo clinched the Vice President position securing 1,734 votes while LSK female representative to the Judicial Service Commission was won by Jacquiline Ingutiah.

The newly elected council will assume its roles on March 25th.
