Kituo Cha Sheria mourns and yet celebrates the life of Justice Louis Omondi Onguto of the High Court of Kenya’s, Commercial Division. We join the legal fraternity in conveying our deepest condolences to the Judge’s family, colleagues and friends during this difficult and trying time.
Throughout his legal career, Justice Onguto was a passionate advocate of access to justice for the indigent and an ardent champion for the empowerment of women and children. He served Kituo Cha Sheria as a volunteer advocate for many years.
As a judge, Justice Onguto contributed greatly towards development of sound jurisprudence. Due to his well reasoned judgments, the Judiciary commanded public confidence, legitimacy and credibility. He served the people of Kenya with distinction and commitment.
We at Kituo Cha Sheria have lost a longstanding friend and volunteer advocate. Kenya as a whole has lost a brilliant legal mind. On behalf of the Board of Directors of Kituo Cha Sheria, the Secretariat and the Office of the Executive Director, we bid farewell to Hon. Justice Onguto and pray that he rests in eternal peace.
