CS Mucheru in bitter exchange of words on Twitter ahead of Supreme Court battle
ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru was engaged in a bitter tweef – Twitter beef – on Twitter with top lawyers.
The CS has an exchange of words with senior counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi and his fellow lawyer Miguna Miguna.
The argument started when the two lawyers alleged that part of the evidence that the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition party will be tabling before the Supreme Court to challenge the Presidential results will be the fake Form 34As.
“Mr Mucheru, you hold public office which you abuse and use to subvert the Constitution. Kenyan taxpayers pay you to uphold the Constitution. I’m committed to exposing, fighting and defeating merchants of impunity like you -unapologetically,” Miguna said.
The CS in his response asked the two to leave him alone and stick to their profession.
“I think lawyers Miguna Miguna and Ahmednasir should stick to their profession. Always Mucheru this, Mucheru that, don’t you have your own lawyers to deal with? It’s your big day at the Supreme Court, FOCUS! Or are you going to be spectators like me?” Mucheru said.

Ahmednasir, better known as The Grand Mullah, sarcastically said that he has no reason to argue with the CS.

Azimio is expected to file their case at the Supreme Court on Monday afternoon seeking the court’s help to quash the presidential election results that saw Deputy President William Ruto being declared the President-elect by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairperson Wafula Chebukati.
The CS is among the government officials who were close to the Azimio Presidential candidate Raila Odinga and had assured him that they will guard his votes.
CS Mucheru is also among the CSs who have not congratulated the President-Elect.
According to Mr Odinga, IEBC Chairperson Mr Chebukati declared the results unconstitutionally, and that the seven commissioners did not approve the results.
The four commissioners led by the IEBC Vice-Chairperson Juliana Cherera came out and refused to take credit for the final results, saying that there were errors that the Chairperson ignored, which had an impact on the presidential results.
