Ngania, who was admitted to the bar in 2011 did not disappoint with her grasp of law as she brilliantly took on other outstanding legal minds in the country while making her submissions.

Second in tow on Wednesday the 15th was Julie Soweto.

Soweto is in court representing activists Njonjo Mue and Khelef Khalifa, alongside city lawyer Harun Ndubi.
