Amicus – A word that is making Nairobians scratch their heads

The presidential petition before the Supreme Court is making Nairobians to either Google or get their dictionary’s out to look for a certain word.

Amicus is a word that has featured frequently in the court’s proceedings since Sunday. Many are scratching their heads on what it means.

Amicus, according to Webster dictionary, is an impartial adviser, often voluntary, to a court of law in a particular case.

Attorney General Githu Muigai and the Law Society of Kenyan have been granted Amicus Curiae status by the Supreme Court in the ongoing petition.

Online trolls still did not understand it and had their own views.
