Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi has come out and exposed the rot that is in the court system revealing that the High Court’s Labour and Employment division is the most corrupt.
In a post on his Twitter account on Monday, the top lawyer accused the court of being incompetent and easily swayed with bribes.
Of all the divisions of the High Court...the Labour and Employment Court is the MOST CORRUPT and inept. At the right fees you can walkout with any judgment...total disgrace...when will the judicial Service Commission (JSC) act!!!

Mr Abdullahi further revealed that whoever has enough money can buy their way out of the Labour and Employment Court regardless the crime one is accused of.
In the tweet, Mr Abdullahi stated that it was a disgrace and further accused the Judicial Service Commission of slacking by not taking any action against the court.
However, in response to the tweet, Kenyans on Twitter questioned whether the Senior Counsel, who was once a member of the JSC, had tried to arrest the situation.
SC, what did you do about it, when you were in the JSC. Be the change and stop shouting.

Others grilled the Senior Counsel on whether he had filed a report with the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) on the graft allegations.
If you have proof that place is corrupt why haven't you reported to the anti corruption #whistle blower

Furthermore, Kenyans urged Mr Abdullahi to take up the matter with the JSC in order to protect the institutions of the Judiciary.
The lawyer opted to leave the Judicial Service Commission at the end of his three-year term in 2013.
However, there were claims that the Law Society of Kenya had plotted to replace Mr Abdullahi as its representative in the JSC.
Ahmednasir, who represented President Uhuru Kenyatta in the presidential election petition at the Supreme Court, has been a vocal critic of incompetency in the judiciary, further dismissing the courts ruling as unworthy.
