The lawyer, through his Twitter handle, stated that the court acted inefficiently after delaying further the issuance of the final verdict on the matter which was heard in July this year.

Governor Wambora’s case had been listed on the Embu Court cause list for Wednesday, October 12, 2018, and and the Governor’s defense team was set to receive the judgment at 9:30 a.m.

Ahmednasir, who made his way to the court early in the day, was, however, disappointment after being told that the judgment was not ready and that it would be delivered at a later date.

“Governor Wambora’s case was heard in July and listed in today’s cause list for judgment. This morning In court we are told judgment isn’t ready. Why can’t the court extend some courtesy, call our office and inform us that the judgment isn’t ready? Practising law in a very hostile environment,” decried the senior Lawyer.

Infuriated by the staggered operations in the court, Ahmednasir argued that “the courts of the Romans, the Byzantine empire and even Hammurabi were more professional, efficient and considerate than the Kenyan Courts of today.”

It is not the first time the lawyer has chided the Judiciary in Kenya. In February this year, Ahmednasir heavily criticised the Judiciary after the Embu High Court nullified the election of Wambora.

In August, Governor Wambora survived an ouster as the Court of Appeal overturned the High Court ruling that nullified the governor’s election in the petition by former Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti.

Justice Fatuma Sichale, in her August ruling, revoked the nullification of Wambora’s election, noting that the minor irregularities noted during the votes scrutiny did not warrant the earlier decision by the High Court.
