Renowned City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi, alias Grand Mullah, has no joy representing clients in the Kenyan courts due to lack of transparency.
The City Lawyer on Friday claimed that the Judiciary is in a mess since ruling on the majority of cases are always premeditated upon.
The lawyer launched his scathing attacks towards the Judiciary on Thursday where he compared the level of transparency between Kenya and foreign countries.
“THINK of the joy lawyers arguing before 11 eminent judges of the SUPREME CRT in ENGLAND have known none of the judges ever contemplate taking a BRIBE from the parties.
In KENYA you CAN’T have that JOY. In 90% of cases, you argue KNOWING that a judge, 2, 3, 4 have been pocketed,” wrote the lawyer on his Twitter page.
The lawyer also demanded that the judiciary system to be overhauled in order to pave the way for reforms that will build trust and transparency.
He claimed that the country was staring at a crisis adding that it was heading towards a wrong direction if the status quo at the corridors of justice persists.
“Kenya will go NOWHERE(in fact Kenya is going down and back) unless we declare the JUDICIARY especially the HIGH COURT and the SUPREME COURT DISASTER ZONES…
And start a fresh reconstruction…corruption is now the norm…(in)justice is sold like UGALI, BREAD, MILK,” he added.
According to the lawyer, Kenyan lawyers are handling cases with fear of being denied justice.
“In 90% of cases you litigate before Kenyan Courts you do so under a mortal fear that judgment was AGREED UPON in your absence,” he said.
In March 2019, Grand Mullah filed a petition at the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) seeking the removal of four Supreme Court judges over bribery allegations in the Wajir gubernatorial petition.
The judges named in the petition were Mohamed K. Ibrahim, Jackton B. Ojwang, Smokin C. Wanjala and Njoki S. Ndung’u.
Ahmednasir, who represented former Wajir governor Ahmed Abdullahi in the petition, accused the judges of pocketing more than Ksh390 million to influence the outcome of the appeal.
