  • Pro-Jubilee lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi and National Super Alliance supporter Donald Kipkorir have clashed again over the interpretation of the withdrawal of NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga from the October 26 poll.

    The two top lawyers engaged in a battle of tweets, seeking to show their prowess in legal matters.

    Mr Kipkorir and Abdullahi have brought the courtroom competition to Twitter this time, each trying to outdo the other on where the political current is headed.


    Their tweets have grown to reflect the political climate in the country, where there is a division between the government and the Opposition.

    In a tweet by Mr. Kipkorir, he stated that Odinga is always correct when he calls for the resignation of IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba.

    Mr. Abdullahi had a few words too for the lawyer claiming that the NASA leader had mystical powers that forced Kipkorir to support him.

    The two also had a heated exchange after Abdullahi told Kipkorir he was punching above his weight with his opinion about the Supreme Court.

    Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, who is also a lawyer by profession, has not been left out of the Twitter battles.

    Former Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Miguna Miguna and analyst Mutahi Ngunyi have also had a share of the online brawl regarding the ongoing political tussle.

    There is no love lost among these legal minds and they have avoided the tribal narrative that has regularly been witnessed in the Kenyan political scene.   ©   2018   All Rights Reserved
