City Lawyer, Donald Kipkorir, on Tuesday, vowed to take action after he was denied the chance of receiving a promotion to a senior counsel.

Reports indicated that the embattled Kipkorir was planning to seek the help of Attorney General Paul Kihara after his application to be elevated to a senior level was rejected.

The controversial lawyer is alleged to have written to the AG questioning the criteria used to nominate 24 lawyers for the new position.

On Monday, his counterparts, who included Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua, were among the lawyers shortlisted for the prestigious title.

Veteran lawyers Prof Albert Mumma, John Ohanga, Kioko Kilukumi, Fred Ngatia, Rautta Athiambo, Waweru Gatonye and Wilfred Nderitu, were also part of the crop that is set to receive the advancement.
