LSK Nairobi at thed Kiambu Chapter Interactive session

LSK Nairobi at thed Kiambu Chapter Interactive session

The Council paid a visit to Kiambu Chapter on 16 th November 2018. The Council paid a courtesy call to the
Lands Registrar Kiambu, the Presiding Judge of Environment and Land Court Kiambu and had an interactive
session with the membership at Eton Hotel. Mr. Ishmael Nguringa, Chair of Kiambu Chapter and its executive
hosted the Branch Council very warmly.
The Branch addressed registry concerns raised by members. The Registrar undertook to enhance service
delivery. Members also noted that there was improved service delivery within the past two (2) years. A
Lands Liaison Committee will be formed to address such matters. We urge our members to give feedback
on any issues arising from land transactions in Kiambu. The meetings will be held quarterly and members are
invited to express interest in joining the Lands Liaison Committee.
It was noted that there is inadequate office space to accommodate the increasing number of files and
having sufficient storage space. Also, the Registry does not have enough stationery, for instance, there are
no binders which affects the filing and lifespan of green cards.
The meeting with the Presiding Judge of ELC, Hon. Lucy Gacheru was insightful as we discussed on the
challenges facing this Court and how to resolve them. The Branch proposed having Court Users
Committee for Kiambu Chapter to discuss such practice matters. Members also discussed dress and address
in Court and the Chair of Kiambu Chapter proposed that the Law Society of Kenya should come up with a
policy of inducting young lawyers.
The membership of Kiambu Chapter addressed the following issues: Undercutting, improving practice and
welfare, member participation and setting up the relevant Bar Bench Committees to improve practice
matters.
The meeting was very successful and we hope to visit other Chapters as well.

Sharing is caring!
