Ahmednasir Abdullahi, a Senior Counsel who is a close ally of the president, has taken it to his social media handle to point fingers at Martha Koome, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and Philomena Mwilu, the Deputy Chief Justice, after receiving the president at the National Assembly today.
According to Ahmednasir, it is out of order for the CJ and the DCJ to line up with politicians to receive the president outside the Kenyan Parliament since the two are judicial officers. The president had visited the Parliament to make his first address to the Members of Parliament.
"Totally out of order for the CJ and DCJ to line up with politicians and receive the President outside Parliament...CJ and DCJ must realise they are judges of the Supreme Court and are thus judicial officers," Ahmednasir wrote on his twitter account.
