NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 23 – The Communication Commission of Kenya (CCK) has lost one of its directors, Peter Simani, who was killed during the Saturday’s terrorist attack at the Westgate mall.

The late Simani has been serving as a director since February 2011 when he was appointed for a three-year term.

Until his demise, Simani was also a Senior Partner and Proprietor of Simani and Associates, a private law firm providing consultancy and legal services in criminal, civil, and commercial law.

He was also the chairman of the Political Parties Dispute Tribunal.

“Having served with him at the CCK Board, I can confirm that Kenya has lost a brilliant lawyer with an incisive and highly analytical mind,” CCK chairman Ben Gituku said in a statement.

“My board highly relied on his guidance in making decisions on intricate legal issues touching on the regulation of the fast-growing ICT sector,” he added.

Gituku said the late Simani was involved in the ongoing review of the ICT regulatory framework where he helped in the development of policies and legislation to Implement Article 34 of the Constitution.

“It is unfortunate that Mr Simani never lived to see the fruits of this process that he gave his all,” Gituku lamented.

He has extended his condolences to the family of the late Simani, and to other families that have lost loved ones in the heinous attack.
