Martha Koome, the Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court, spent yesterday's morning visiting with young people from the Mogra Rescue Center off Kiambu Road in an effort to spread holiday cheer.
She was accompanied by several judges, including Philomena Mwilu, the deputy chief justice, and Supreme Court of Kenya staff members. Orphans and abandoned children are served by the facility in the capital city.
However, the photo of the chief justice and deputy chief justice holding infants at the facility caught attention, and attorney Ahmednasir Abdulilahi used the opportunity to make fun of the justices of the supreme court.
Ahmednasir, a vocal critic of the judiciary leadership, said, "Silence, the Supreme Court of Kenya is in session." Junet Mohamed, a lawmaker from Suna East, quickly chimed in and jokingly described what the Judges were doing as a "wild goose chase."
After being used during the ruling on the presidential petition, the phrase gained notoriety. Ledama Olekina, a senator for Narok County, was more accommodative and urged Junet to avoid stirring up trouble.
