Why IEBC was wise to hire PLO Lumumba as their lead counsel

This is why the former anti-corruption head remains unmarched inside the courts of law.

With statements such as "The schizophrenic jurisprudence with which the petitioner trioxidated the submission is gastrocnemius" the Advocate of the high court left mouths ajar with his lingustical prowess.

But this is not news.

Even before his time as the Director of Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission, Patrick Loch Otieno Lumumba had already made a name for himself when it came to mastering different languages and making ample use of them.

The question is, what makes him so clever?

It's of no doubt that the man of law is well learned. He attained his Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Law at the University of Nairobi, followed by a PhD in the Laws of the Sea at the University of Ghent in Belgium.

However while books could make a man understand the concept of law, it's the experience and exposure that garners prowess in a proffession.

Dr Lumumba is a seasoned man in his career courtesy of the many positions he has held in various important offices.

This is the work experience part of his curriculum vitae.
