    The ANC party is headed by former Vice President Musalia Mudavadi.

    "I have come here to ask for a chance to serve you in parliament as the Member of Parliament for Westlands," stated Havi.

    "I have a direction, which is the Amani National Congress. The problem with Westlands is the lack of well being and lack of jobs. That is why the agenda for ANC is to improve the current economic state of the area," he vowed.

    On Monday, April 19, Musalia Mudavadi met the LSK boss where they discussed constitutional and legal matters of significance and their implication to Kenyans.

    "Today I held discussions with Nelson Havi, The President of the Law Society of Kenya. We deliberated on Constitutional and Legal matters of significance and their implications on the Kenyan people," mentioned Mudavadi after the meeting.

    Havi was elected LSK president in 2020, to serve a two-year term from 2020 to 2022.

    Earlier this year, LSK suspended the lawyer citing abuse of office. Havi had suspended council members leading to the tension in the council.

    However, the court reinstated the members who had been suspended.
