President Kenyatta’s ICC Lawyer Dies in Nairobi

Evan Monari, one of the lawyers who represented President Uhuru Kenyatta at the International Criminal Court (ICC), has died.

The lawyer passed away on Monday, October 4, 2021 while undergoing treatment at the Nairobi Hospital. News of his death was revealed by his brother Ken Monari via social media.

“It is with profound sadness that I would like to inform on behalf of the Ogeto family that Evans has gone to be with the Lord. May the almighty God rest his soul in peace. Thank you for your continued support,” Ken said.

Monari had been sick for a while and was in and out of hospital.

Leading up to his death, he was admitted at Nairobi Hospital and had spent four weeks at the medical facility’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Monari’s family and friends have called upon well wishers to help them settle a Ksh16 million medical bill that bMonari had accrued while undergoing treatment.

On Friday, October 1, law firm, Lehmann Associates revealed that though the lawyer had an insurance cover, the insurance company has since refused to settle the bill.

“Our colleague Senior Evans Monari has been unwell and hospitalised in the Intensive Care Unit at a hospital in Nairobi for the past 4 weeks.

“The medical bill as at today stands at Ksh16 million and it continues to grow. Whereas Evans has an insurance cover that would handle the bill, the Insurance Company has refused to settle the bill,” the law firm said.

Monari was a partner in Bowmans’ Law Firm Nairobi office dispute resolution department. He specialised in commercial litigation, civil litigation, public law, aviation law, criminal and constitutional law and election petitions.

Monari also represented former Police Commissioner Hussein Ali and former Head of Civil Service Francis Muthaura at the ICC.
