Supreme Court judge demands apology from lawyer Ahmednasir
Senior Counsel Ahmednasir given terms for apology
The judge demanded the Ms Abdullahi apologizes for his remarks on all social and print media for his remarks.
Speaking during an interview last week, Mr Abdullahi said that his firm will file a formal complaint to the JSC in two weeks’ time with evidence linking two Supreme Court judges to graft.
"We have the names of the judges, let’s wait for the petition," the Senior Counsel stated.
"Removal of a judge is a constitutional process, therefore it is for my clients to present evidence before JSC which will deliberate and form a committee, if a premafacie case is found, they’ll recommend a tribunal to be formed,” he added.
His firm protested against the outcome of the Wajir gubernatorial election petition.
Notably, Mr Abdullahi declined to name the judges they intend to file complaints against.
Mr Abdullahi claimed that he had evidence of cash withdrawals from three local banks to facilitate bribery by an MP from North Eastern Kenya.
He vowed to expose how the bribery funds were wired from Dubai and also involved the sale of property in Eastleigh, Nairobi, as part of the deal.
