They adjourned the hearing when the six judges recused themselves from the matter as long as Ahmednasir was the one in record.

During the virtual hearing, the court led by Chief Justice Martha Koome said that they would not proceed with the matter if Ahmednasir is part of its defense.

Senior Counsel Ahmednasir was on January 18th barred from appearing before the Supreme Court, had appeared in court to represent a family in a legal battle over a Sh.2 billion land case with the family of the late President Daniel Moi.

He added that he would only appear or take a brief if justice Lenaola, Ouko and other new members constitute of the majority at the court.

“I will not take a brief or appear before the Supreme Court as long as CJ Koome, DCJ Mwilu, Smokin Wanja and Njoki are judges of the Supreme Court Kenya.” He said.

“I will come back to the Court (InshaAllah) if and when Justices Ibrahim, Lenaola, Ouko and other new members constitute a majority in the Supreme Court,” he outlined his ‘condition’.” He added.

The letter by the Supreme Court that is barring the Senior Counsel from appearing before it is now adopted as a court order.

“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 holding brief for you, or acting pursuant to your instructions.” The letter to Ahmednasir on January 18th  read in part.

The Supreme Court barred Ahmednasir on grounds that he has had continued attacks on judges and the judiciary.
