Don't Ask Questions You Don't Have Answers To: Mutula Kilonzo To Kipkorir During Marsit Hearing

The IEBC tribunal seeking to investigate whether IEBC official Irene Marsit will continue serving in the commission has recently concluded the hearing session. The tribunal has since reconvened to make a decision on whether Mrs Marsit will be retained.

However, the hearing session was filled with various moments although the major talking points happened to be cross examination moments between Marsit's lawyer Donald B. kipkorir and IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati.

During one instance, the lawyer asked whether Chebukati had prepared someone who could release the IEBC results in case of his demise to which Chebukati responded, "But i am alive and here." Kipkori's cross examination style was questioned by multiple Kenyans and Makueni Governor Mutula Kilonzo junior happened to be one of them.

In a recent message sent through his Social Media accounts, Kilonzo who is a lawyer by profession noted that Kipkorir may have committed a rocky mistake in his cross examination.

The Machakos Governor revealed that during cross examination, lawyers ought to ask questions which they have answers to. "Rules of cross examination tactic 101: Don't ask questions which you don't know the answer." "The Goldenberg inquiry offered good precedent." Mutula Kilonzo Jnr started.
