Renowned lawyer AHMEDNASIR ABDULLAHI banned permanently from appearing in the Supreme Court over his 'foul' mouth

Friday, January 19, 2024 - Renowned Nairobi lawyer, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, has been permanently banned from appearing before the Supreme Court over his foul mouth.

In a statement on Thursday, the country’s apex court which consists of seven judges, unanimously agreed to bar Ahmednasir and his law firm from appearing before it.

The Martha Koome-led court accused the lawyer of "relentlessly and unabashedly conducting a campaign in the broadcast, print and social media aimed at scandalizing, ridiculing and out rightly denigrating the Court."

“Given the foregoing, it is the decision of this Court, that henceforth and from the date of this Communication, you shall have no audience before the Court, either by yourself, through an employee of your law firm, or any other person," read part of the statement drafted by Letizia Muthoni Wachira, the Registrar of the Supreme Court.

Wachira stated that she was authorized by the full seven-judge bench of the Supreme Court of Kenya to address SC Ahmednasir alias the Grand Mullah.

"Through social media posts, media interviews, and write-ups, you have accused the Court either in its constitutive persona, or individual membership, of acts of corruption, incompetence, and outright bribery. 

"This, you have done with reckless abandon, paying scant regard to the reputations of those who tirelessly serve on the Court in accordance with their Oath of Office.

"Notwithstanding the damage to the reputation of the Court, and the Judges who have served thereon over the years, both in its corporate and individual posture and to render justice to those you represent, the Court has exercised restraint by not deploying the punitive tools available to it against you," the registrar stated.
