Human Rights Lawyers in Kenya

CIVIL & HUMAN RIGHTS are guaranteed to Kenyans by the 2010 Constitution. Some of these rights include the freedom of expression and speech – including for members of press, right to be free from police misconduct, discrimination in educational settings, employment and protection of religion.

Others include the right to vote, protection of refugees, stateless and internally displaced persons, freedoms of peaceful assembly and association, freedom of movement, and the right to equality in public places.

When employers, landlords, or government employees discriminate against applicants or employees based on age, disability, sex, race, color, national origin, or religion, they can be held liable for violating these important civil rights. If your civil rights get violated, you should contact an experienced civil rights attorney who can advise and help you take the legally recognized steps to get justice constitutionally prescribed to you.

NCHOGU, OMWANZA & NYASIMI ADVOCATES is a leading law firm based in Nairobi, Kenya that specializes in wide areas of practice, including Human Rights Law. We are experienced attorneys in handling human rights abuse arising from

Police Misconduct & False Arrest.
Although police officers have broad powers to carry out their duties, they are prohibited from violating the civil rights of others. An example is false arrest and malicious prosecution. Police officers can be held liable for their actions if they exceed the scope of their authority by use of excessive force. Once a police officer uses excessive force, he or she loses the protection of immunity. Victims can then hold a police officer accountable for violating their civil rights. The injured parties can collect compensation for their losses.

Employment Discrimination
Kenya’s 2010 constitution makes it illegal to discriminate against someone based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in any aspect of employment, including:
• Hiring and firing
• Compensation or assignment
• Transfer or promotion
• Recruitment
• Testing, training programs and/or retirement plans

These laws help protect citizens from having their right to be treated equally under the law regardless of race, age, or religion violated by government or non-government employers.

The law also protects kenyans from having their civil rights violated by making it unlawful for landlords or sellers to:
• Refuse to sell or rent a dwelling to anyone because of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, or national origin;
• Offer different sale or rental terms because of a person’s race, religion, sex, or another protected characteristic; and

Landlords or real estate agents who fail to comply with these laws can be held liable for their actions.
