Prof. Makau Mutua Faces Kenyans' 'Wrath' After Uttering Contentious Comments on ICJ Ruling

The US-based law Professor Makau Mutua has been among the latest people to say what they think about the ICJ court ruling. According to the verdict handed yesterday October 12, 2021, Kenya lost the maritime water body to Somalia. The court ruled in favor of Somalia stating that Kenyans claims to that territory were wrong.

However, Professor Mutua has faced the wrath of Kenyans after he issued contentious remarks regarding the ICJ ruling. Taking to his Twitter he said, "ON @CIJ_ICJ ruling on the border dispute with Somalia — in spite of the court’s reliance on illegitimate colonial cartography — Kenya must remember that respect for the rule of law matters most when it’s inconvenient to you. Nairobi needs to “accept and move on.”


His remarks did not land well on the ears of most Kenyans who felt that the ruling was biased. Initially, Kenya had pulled out of the case stating that they suspected they would not find justice which was allegedly to be compromised. Below are their reactions.
