The Law Society of Kenya eulogized him as a courageous man who invented and dared on daredevil briefs; pushed them to the highest courts in the land.

“Being able to present himself as an anti-establishment litigator and courageous lawyer somehow won him clients on both sides.

He represented the downtrodden and ran errands for the high and mighty. His legal genius allowed him to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds at the same time,” the LSK said in its tribute.
