coop -More trouble continued to rock the Law Society of Kenya LSK’s current President Nelson Havi whose efforts to change bank account signatories has hit a brick wall.
In his efforts to persuade the Standard Chartered Bank to allow change of particulars on LSK accounts, Havi couldn’t go far as the bank asked him to follow due process to be able to make such legal changes.
From a series of responses Havi posted on his Twitter account, the bank through their lawyers Hamilton Harrison & Mathew Advocates noted that he is a stranger not authorized to access the organization’s details including bank statements.
“The letter dated 28 of June 2021 instructing our client to change the bank account signatories is only signed by you Nelson Havi the president. However, we take note that you are not an authorized signatory to the bank accounts.” the Standard Chartered Bank noted.
There is reasonable suspicion that Standard Charted Bank Ltd, which is aware that the statements are required for a forensic audit by LSK, is complicit in the concealment of the issues sought to be examined on expenditure of members’ monies by former officials and Wambua. ^POLSK

Havi will therefore be required to follow due process which includes rightful channels as contained in a resolution that was sent to the bank in 2007.
The bank says it is their full responsibility to safeguard the interests of their client and hence cannot comprise on their service delivery.
Next year, unfortunately, Havi will be completing his term and such huddles may delay his plans to successfully manage the once vibrant lawyers’ body LSK.
As of now only four signatories are recognized by the bank and Havi is not yet one of them.
