Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi Explains why he won’t represent Ruto at the Supreme Court

Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi, popularly known as Grandmullah now says he will not be representing President-Elect William Ruto in any petition filed to nullify his victory due to conflicting interests.

In a statement on his Twitter account, Grand-Mullah said he fears outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta might raise objections citing client-advocate privilege because he was on his side when Raila Odinga successfully challenged his victory.

“I want but i can’t act for President Elect Ruto in the Supreme Court. I’m conflicted. In 2017, I acted for Uhuru against Raila. Now that Raila is challenging Ruto’s victory, obviously, Uhuru will object and raise clients-Advocate privilege,” he stated.

On Monday, The Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate was declared President-elect by IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati.

The outcome has so far been challenged by his closest competitor, Raila Odinga, including the four out of seven commissioners at the election body that oversaw the vote.

“We want to see justice done so that peace can be found,” Raila said at his Nairobi home after a meeting with religious leaders.

Ahmednasir has offered to update Kenyans on his Twitter account, including predicting the petition outcome.

“I will run a Twitter commentary on the Supreme Court petition that will be filed by Hon Raila. I will appraise the strength and weaknesses of the case, the responses by the respondents, and jurisprudential clue we should look from the 7 judges. I will predict the decision.” the city lawyer stated on his Twitter.

Here are some of the mixed reactions by a section of Kenyans following his decision.
