Lawyer Philip Nzamba Kitonga dies after a short illness as stated by the family.


The lawyer who chaired the Committee of Experts on the 2010 Constitutional Review fell on Sunday evening while on his way to Nairobi from Makueni.


Senior Counsel Kitonga was born in 1956 in Kitui County and has died at the age of 64.
 
 

He was also active in political matters and contended for the Kitui gubernatorial seat in 2013, but lost the former governor Julius Malombe.



Senior Counsel Nzamba held positions such as the president of the East Africa Law Society and COMESA Court of Justice.


He was among the shortlisted candidates for the position of Chief Justice of Kenya to replace Willy Mutunga.

Recently, the lawyer criticised President Uhuru Kenyatta for delaying to appoint the 41 judges.

He said that due to the delay, the backlog of cases has now crippled operations at our courts beyond imagination.


"The courts are now very desperate. Even lawyers and litigants are increasingly becoming desperate."
