Senior counsel Ahmednasir Abdulilahi is up in arms after the decision by Nairobi county governor Johnson Sakaja not to order the closing down of noisy churches in Nairobi county just like he had done with pubs operating in residential areas.
In a statement on social media, the vocal lawyer says that the decision by the Nairobi county governor is a contravention of the law and that he disagrees with it on the basis that it is not in tandem with the constitution.
He argued that no kenyan has the power to overlook or live above the law and that Sakaja's statement that he believes in God and that he won't close noisy churches is exactly that.
"If we obey the law we will not disagree. Obeying or enforcing the law is not discretionary. No one has power to break, overlook or override the law. That is why my Governor Johnson Sakaja is breaking the law in saying he will not enforce the law on noise pollution against churches," Ahmednasir said.
