Nelson Havi is a gentleman who represents the rags to riches through hard work and a resilience mantra. Nelson currently operates as the President of the Law Society of Kenya and is setting things orderly. He had been eyeing the position for a long time, and on achieving the age requirement, ran an intrusive and compelling campaign that recorded him as the 49th president of the society. He has lately been in the limelight following tags on Law vs. Politics.
He was on live TV with Edwin Sifuna on 19th January at 9:00 pm to have what was termed as the big collision in addressing a collection of matters. The interview carried by Citizen Television’s Wahiga Mwaura has been making trending on Twitter where the two battled in a word battle as they ascertained how precisely the Law and Politics find mutual ground.

He was the best performer throughout school and was a beloved student to most of his teachers. Regrettably, Nelson lost his dad, the late Mr. Obwamo, when he was a Form 1 student. The late Obwamo had been executed during the 1992 post-election violence, which greatly motivated Nelson Havi’s choice of professional path in later years. He studied Law and was fortunate to land an employment opening immediately.

He has explained his role as a wartime president, striving to make things better in KSL, like complacency & corruption.
