Chief Justice designate Martha Koome has promised action against Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi following utterances she says caused her embarrassment.

Lady Justice Koome referred to the contents of a memorandum which was submitted to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) by the LSK president.

In the memorandum, Havi claimed that the CJ nominee had allegedly demonstrated her partiality.

The CJ nominee went on to demand that Mr Havi withdraw his statement in a written document to the JSC and the LSK.
