Yesterday, the Chief Justice and and also president of the Supreme court Martha Koome spent her morning together with other supreme court justices meeting with children from the Mogra Rescue Centre off Kiambu Road in the spirit of the festive season.
She was accompanied by deputy chief justice Philomena Mwilu, several Judges and Staff of the Supreme Court of Kenya. The centre that is located in the capital city caters for orphans and abandoned children.
The image of the chief justice and the deputy chief justice holding babies at the facility stood out, however, with lawyer Ahmednasir Abdulilahi seizing the moment to mock the supreme court justices.
"Silence, the Supreme court of Kenya is in session," Ahmednasir, a vocal critic of the judiciary leadership stated. Suna east constituency legislator Junet Mohamed quickly joined in, jokingly refered to what the Judges were doing as a "wild goose chase".
The phrase was popularized after being used during the presidential petition supreme court verdict. However, Narok county senator Ledama Olekina was more reconciliatory, asking Junet not to be provocative.
