The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has accused two public officials of misconduct for participating in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s dinner, Friday last week, that saw Sh500 million raised in two hours.

The two, Energy Principal Secretary (PS) Joseph Njoroge and Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) commissioner general John Njiraini, were introduced as ‘members of a technical committee’ of a pro-Uhuru lobby group.

LSK president Isaac Okero has written to head of Public Service, Prof Margaret Kobia, to investigate the duo over violation of the law.

“As one would expect, this report is causing great public consternation as it describes actions that amount to misconduct on the part of the two officials by their breach of constitutional values and principles of public service and their violation of statutory requirements for political neutrality imposed on state and public officers of their rank and position,” said Okero in the letter, Monday.

LSK wants the two, charged if found guilty.
