Lawyer Paul Gicheru Biography, Age, Education, Family, Career,
Paul Gicheru was a Kenyan lawyer who was accused by the International Criminal Court (ICC) of contacting witnesses, “offered or paid them financial or other benefits, or threatened or intimidated them to induce them to withdraw as prosecution witnesses” to scuttle the crime against humanity cases that faced the then deputy president William Ruto and former journalist Joshua Arap Sang at the Hague based court.
Through those who interacted with the lawyer, he is described as a kind, humble man who led a simple life and was not one to flaunt a lavish lifestyle. He also used to frequent various social joints in Eldoret where he was famed for his generosity.
The lawyer was 52 years when he died suddenly on 26th September, 2022.
Between 1987 and 1990, he was a student at Kapsabet Boys High School.
He then proceeded to the University for a Law degree followed by the Kenya School of Law for a postgraduate diploma in law.
After being admitted to the bar, he began his career at a law firm in Eldoret called Kalya and Company Advocates.
Later, he opened his own law firm named Mr. Gicheru and Company Advocates at Veecam building on Oloo street Eldoret.
Despite being of Agikuyu origin, the people of Eldoret, mostly Kalenjins, embraced him and many sought him for legal representation.
The fact that he was born and raised in Uasin Gishu and can speak fluent Kalenjin was an added bonus.
