Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi has been arrested over accusations that he assaulted suspended CEO Mercy Wambua.
According to LSK Vice-President Carolyne Kamende, Havi was arrested on Tuesday at his office and whisked to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) offices.
Wambua on Monday alleged that Havi assaulted her during a meeting at their Gitanga road offices in Nairobi.
Havi dismissed the claims saying Wambua forced her way into the boardroom while they were having a meeting with the intention of recording the proceedings.
Wambua, in the company of her lawyer Steve Ogolla, recorded a statement at the Muthangari Police Station stating that Havi allegedly accosted her in the boardroom where she was to have a meeting.
Havi, on the other hand, dismissed the assault claims blaming Wambua for interrupting an ongoing meeting at the boardroom with an intention of eavesdropping and secretly recording the proceedings.
