Uhuru Mourns Lawyer Who Featured In 2013 Election Petitions

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday, January 14 condoled with the family of city lawyer Nani Njoroge Mungai who passed away at a Nairobi hospital after a long illness.

Prior to his demise, Njoroge had represented the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) which battled petitions in court regarding the 2013 presidential elections.

In his message of condolence and comfort, the President mourned Njoroge, who until his demise was the Chairman of the Postal Corporation Board of Directors, as an accomplished lawyer whose service to the nation shall be dearly missed.

He was also the founding partner of MMC Asafo and had served as the Director of Kenya Development Corporation Limited (formerly ICDC).

The Head of State prayed to God to grant the family, friends and relatives of Mr Njoroge divine fortitude at this difficult period of mourning.

Uhuru’s condolence message was supported by Former Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi, who revisited his legal relationship with him.

“Six months after admission, I won a case against Nani Mungai. “I will double your pay” was what he said when we had lunch a week after. It was a fair deal.

“We won many major cases together at MMC and after I set up on my own. Death has won this time around by sharp practice,” he wrote on Twitter.

Njoroge had advised on the largest IPO in East and Central Africa which entailed the sale of 25% of the Government of Kenya’s shareholding in Safaricom at the then Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE).

He acted for the Kenya Airports Authority and advised it on the proposed airport concession of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi through a privately initiated investment proposal.

He also represented the owners and developers of electricity projects including wind, solar and geothermal projects in all aspects of conceptualisation and development of the projects.

Njoroge advised Geothermal Development Company (GDC) on the utilisation, operation and maintenance of GDC’s 59 geothermal wells situated in the Olkaria basin with a production capacity of about 280 MW.

He holds a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from the University of Nairobi as well as a Post Graduate Diploma In Law from the Kenya School of Law.
