Orengo lectures AG Githu Muigai and Twitter is excited

The Court of Appeal has turned into a battle arena between the country’s top legal minds Attorney General Githu Muigai and Senator James Orengo and Twitter is excited.

The two lawyers are on opposite sides in a case challenging the announcement of presidential results at the constituency level.

Appellate judges Asike Makhandia, Kathurima M’Inoti, William Ouko, Patrick Kiage and Agnes Murgor have been hearing submissions for the last two days.

Attorney General Prof Muigai, in his submission, called on the appellate judges to abstain from politicising the outcome of the case.

He argued that the law as it is, is sound enough to shield the country from past sad experiences, hence no need for mistrusting the IEBC.

Senator Orengo was of a different opinion.

“It cannot be said the law as it is gives the commission or its chair the position of varying the presidential results as received from the returning officer at the constituency,” said Senator Orengo.

The showdown between the two legal minds has excited Kenyans on Twitter.
