Uhuru’s lawyer reveals '3 silly mistakes' Jubilee made after Raila swearing-in

Jubilee acted in a silly way

Speaking during an interview on Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) show on Citizen TV, Mr. Abdullahi stated that it was silly for the Jubilee Government to pay attention to the controversial oath-taking event held at Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018.

Reacting to Raila's Swearing-in

“The Kenyan Government overreacted and in my view, that was uncalled for. It was a circus and the government should have ignored them completely,” Abdullahi opined.

The lawyer, who represented President Kenyatta during the 2017 presidential petition, also said that the arrest of NASA leaders was unnecessary.

Since the swearing-in of the former Prime Minister, Opposition leaders have faced many troubles with three its leaders arrested.

Media Shutdown

Nassir indicated that it was also wrong for the Government to switch off television station for fear of broadcasting Mr. Odinga’s inauguration.

He insisted that media freedom is not something that can be compromised.

“The idea of switching off television stations for one idea or another is too draconian to be justified,” he said.

Miguna Deportation

At the same time, the wealthy lawyer noted that the arrest and deportation of self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement (NRM) General Miguna Miguna was another unlawful yet silly mistake made by the Government.

"What they did to Miguna was wrong and it was simply not fair and at the right time he will have proper legal redress in the courts,” he said.

Mr. Abdullahi rubbished the Government’s explanation that Mr. Miguna was not a Kenyan Citizen as he allegedly renounced it to acquire a Canadian Citizenship.

“That is a silly thing because the law allows for dual Nationality and the mere fact that you were born Kenyan no one can take that away from you,” he told JKL’s host. “Jubilee was being petty and ill-advised on this Miguna matter because it is not even something that should preoccupy the country for all these five days,” he noted.

According to the Constitution: “A citizen by birth does not lose citizenship by acquiring the citizenship of another country”.

The lawyer fondly known as Grand Mullah added that the Government wasted public funds in deporting Miguna.

"Why do you spend money and resources to deport Miguna? What did you want to achieve? What has he done? Nothing,” he said.
