“The response for AFBA in Kenya is overwhelming and everyone wants to join led by our Hon attorney general and our local law society chapters who made requests to join even as corporate members and have also made requests for the holding of AFBA conference in future, there is a great job well laid ahead for the new Kenya forum officials in terms of managing and registering the fairly large number of lawyers in Kenya as AFBA members” Portharcourt 2017 Planner

“I was part of the launch of the Kenya Forum and was I proud!“ Nyamogo
“Waooooh!!!The outcome of the launch of the AFBA Kenya Forum is beyond description and I am not exaggerating.This ranks as one of the best events I have ever attended in my life.I give God all the praise and glory.Amen.This event showed that when people believe and are united for the same purpose ,they can move mountains.The Kenya forum officials were simply fantastic.C.N.Kihara (AFBA director of legal services)Nicholas Sumba(The International Liaison Manager) went beyond the call of duty to ensure the Success of the launch by making amazing personal sacrifices.
The occasion was graced by the Who is Who in the Kenya legal fraternity.Those present were::The Attorney General of Kenya who was the guest speaker,The deputy Solicitor General, The commisioner of the Judicial Service Commission,The president of the law Society of Kenya and Council members,The Chair of the Nairobi chapter of the Lsk and members of his council, Judges,Senior Counsels,Lawyers representing the government departments and the corporate world and Junior lawyers in high numbers.The happiest moment was when the President of the old African Bar Association(ABA),Lee Muthoga SC rose to address the gathering.He was ABA President from 1982–1989.He gave a History of the old Africa Bar Association and took those present down memory lane.He strongly recommended that all Kenya lawyers should seize the opportunity to join AFBA.All speakers did the same especially the local bar president and the guest Speaker –The Attorney General of Kenya.
The able chair of the Kenya forum,Alfred Ochieng Opiyo,Alex Gatundu Secretary and the Vice Chair Carolyne Kamende Daudi did wonders.Infact,Carolyne invited 100 lawyers and all turned up.She also made critical financial contributions together with Nicholas Sumba and C.N.Kihara that helped to bring about success.
I wish to thank the President of AFBA,Hannibal Uwaifo for his brilliant and wonderfully crafted Speech which was read on his behalf by the SVP.The speech was well received by all present.According to final record of attendance , 286 lawyers attended the Lunch.To God be the Glory.Long live Kenya forum of AFBA!!!Long live AFBA!!!” Ambassador Matthew Beeki.
