“This a personal and heartfelt thank you for each and every one of you who stood by me, supported, encouraged and most importantly voted for me.
This election has taught me resilience, I have learned to value my colleagues that much more; I have realised that members of LSK value their society and it is for that reason they came out and voted for their candidates.
I am honoured and humbled by the overwhelming support from you my colleagues. You have entrusted me with your mandate to provide leadership as a Council Member and for that I thank you and I commit to be accountable and deliver on behalf of the Law Society of Kenya.
This race was tough and I want to congratulate Herine Kabita for a deserved win. Congratulations on your election as Council Member as well.
