Tribute to the late Dr. David Gachuki

It is with deep sadness that Kituo Cha Sheria received news of the passing of one of our Founder Members Dr. David Gachuki. Dr. Gachuki was a firm believer in the rule of law and access to justice; his contribution to legal aid was outstanding. We will forever remember him for starting Kituo Cha Sheria Legal Advice Centre together with a group of law students in post-colonial Kenya which helps thousands of poor and marginalized communities across the country access justice.
Apart from being a founder member of Kituo, he also served Kituo as Chairman of the Board of Directors between 1995 and 2000. Dr. Gachuki was an advocate of the High Court of Kenya and a senior lecturer in Law at the University of Nairobi. He attained his LL.B from the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and his LL.M from Queens University, Ontario, Canada in 1976 and 1977 respectively. He held a Ph.D (International Business and Investment Law) from University of Warwick, Coventry, England (1982).
Dr. Gachuki has published severally and was a respected commercial law researcher and teacher. He has previously served as Kituo’s BoD Chair (1995-2000) and has been an active volunteer advocate at Kituo since 1980.
Fare thee well Daktari!
