Lawyer Evans Monari is dead.

Evans passed on Monday night at the Nairobi Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, announced his family.

He has been battling multiple complications of his internal organs and has been in and out of the hospital.

Monari is a High Court of Kenya counsel who previously worked as the Head of Dispute Resolution and Arbitration at Coulson Harney, Advocates.

Commercial litigation, civil litigation, public law, aviation law, criminal and constitutional law, and election petitions were among his areas of expertise.

The deceased represented former Police Commissioner Hussein Ali and former Head of Civil Service Francis Muthaura who faced Crimes Against Humanity Charges at The Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) arising from the 2007-08 post-election violence in Kenya.

President Kenyatta mourned Monari as a solid and dependable legal mind who leaves behind a rich legacy of professional success.

“Evans succumbed to the brutal hand of death after a long illness, which is regrettable. He was a renowned lawyer in our country who established himself as a trusted resource as evidenced by his accomplishments,” said President Kenyatta.
