Chief Justice David Maraga today admitted over 200 new advocates to the Bar, the second batch of newly trained lawyers.
All the new advocates will be admitted to the Roll of Advocates this year.
Maraga admitted 223 new advocates to the Bar on Wednesday, in the first admission ceremony this year, at the Supreme Court.
Deputy President William Ruto’s son, Nick Ruto, and Governor Joseph ole Lenku’s personal assistant, Daniel Kanchori were among those admitted to the Bar today.
DP Ruto urged Nick to stand true to his calling as a defender of justice, human rights and a campaigner for equity and truth.
Kanchori, who is the immediate former Oloosirkon MCA, was accompanied by her mother, Joyce Sompet and had had the opportunity to introduce her to the President of Supreme Court, Maraga.
