The family of senior advocate Evans Monari has announced that he passed on Monday evening, October 4, 2021.

Monari was one of the advocates who represented President Uhuru Kenyatta during the 2017 Presidential Petition at the Supreme Court.

The family said that the lawyer had been receiving treatment at a city hospital over the past month where he breathed his last.

Lehmann Associates has started a fundraiser to help pay for the huge hospital bill that accrued.

The medical bill as at today stands at Kshs. 16 Million and it continues to grow. Whereas Evans has an insurance cover that would handle the bill, the Insurance Company has refused to settle the bill.

The family is now saddled with this huge medical bill that they now seek your kind assistance to settle,” a statement from Lehmann Associates read.

According to the law firm, the family’s friends and Monari’s colleagues are the only hope of clearing the bill.

Until his death, the late was a Senior Disputes & Arbitration Partner at Coulson Harney LLP.
