My beloved Jubilee government is too small-minded at times — Ahmednasir Abdullahi
By Vincent Kejitan | June 12th 2020
Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi on Friday hit out at the
Jubilee government following a smear campaign against Chief Justice David
This is after some defamatory banners aimed at the CJ were
put up at various points in the city.
Ahmednasir insisted that the Judiciary is an equal arm of
government, appearing to point an accusing finger at the Jubilee
“My BELOVED JUBILEE govt at times is too "SMALL
MINDED"...What is this cheap nonsense against the judiciary?
“Isn't the judiciary a co-equal arm of government?” he
On Friday, the Judiciary asked the Inspector General of
Police and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to investigate
those behind the banners saying they were in bad taste.
The banners, which read “COMING SOON…Who Maraga is
protecting” were seen at various places in Nairobi and the Judiciary has
strongly condemned the act.
“The content of the banners intimated that this was the

“While the Judiciary does not know the people behind these
attacks, it is clear that the banners are a continuation of well-choreographed
attacks on the Judiciary throughout this week, particularly on social media,”
read the statement in part.
This comes just days after Maraga blamed President Uhuru
Kenyatta for disregarding court orders, terming it a recipe for anarchy.
In his address, the CJ also voiced frustrations at how he has sought audience with President Kenyatta but to no avail.
