This is ADEN DUALE's message after the Supreme Court banned AHMEDNASIR from appearing before it


Friday, January 19, 2024 - Defence Cabinet Secretary, Aden Duale, has spoken after the Supreme Court of Kenya banned renowned Nairobi lawyer, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, from appearing before it.

In a statement on Friday, January 19, 2024, Duale accused the Supreme Court of contravening Article 33 of the Constitution, which provides for freedom of expression.

"The Constitution of Kenya 2010 under Article 33 provides for the freedom of expression, explicitly stating that every person has and shall enjoy this right," Duale stated.

"Ahmednasir Abdullahi, like any other Kenyan, is entitled to this and the Judiciary will not gag him in this day and age of our country, guided by Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law."

The Supreme Court on Thursday permanently barred Ahmednasir from appearing before it over his consistent disparaging remarks made against the institution and its judges on various media platforms

Supreme Court judges led by Chief Justice Martha Koome, her Deputy Philomena Mwilu, and Justices Mohamed Ibrahim, Smokin Wanjala, Njoki Ndungu, Isaac Lenaola and William Ouko said Ahmednasir's attacks destroyed the individual judges’ reputations.
