The just concluded Presidential petition hearing brought together some of the most outstanding legal minds in the country.
From the tough James Orengo, to the composed Fred Ngatia, the learned friends took time to defend their clients.
Well, the bench had women well represented: Philemona Mwilu the Deputy Chief Justice and Lady Justice Njoki Ndu’ngu as the women on Supreme Court bench.
But there was a lady who took the stand for a few minutes at the Supreme Court- her name Ng'ania Melissa. She was probably the youngest female lawyer in the 2017 presidential petition.
Ngania who was admitted to the bar in 2011 was in company of senior counsels Fred Ngatia, Ahmednassir Abdullahi and lawyer Tom Macharia and were representing President Uhuru Kenyatta in the petition filed by Raila Odinga.
Kenyans online were quick to give their opinion as soon as the Ngania stood up to give her submissions. From the comments on Facebook, most men jokingly asked if there was any possible way they could get her number.
When Dennis Itumbi, the guy in charge of president’s digital platform posted her picture, he was bombarded with “fisi” accusation with some suggesting that this was in fact an opportunity for him to get a partner.
