Ahmednasir Sues Supreme Court Judges in Tanzania

On Friday, Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi revealed his intention to pursue legal action against the Supreme Court.

He plans to seek redress at the East African Court of Justice in Arusha, Tanzania, challenging the Supreme Court’s ruling that prevents him from participating in its proceedings.

“I have instructed my lawyers to file a petition in the East African Court of Justice at Arusha to seek legal redress against Koome,” Ahmednasir noted.


“I will not waste time going to Koome’s courts,” the barrister also known as the Grand Mullah added.

Accusing the apex court of corruption, Ahmednasir refrained from specifying the timeframe for filing his petition.

Despite this, he emphasized that the Supreme Court denied him the opportunity to voice his opposition to the issue by not granting him an audience.

“Second time in my 30 years of law career that the courts refused me audience for calling for the removal of some judges from the courts,” Ahmednasir claimed.

“The first time was in 2,000 when I was ejected from the court and told not to come back because I presented a paper at an annual conference calling for the reconstitution of the High Court and the Court of Appeal afresh.”

Ahmednasir asserted that in the history of Kenya, no other lawyer has faced a denial of an audience for criticizing corrupt and incompetent judges.

He cautioned that the Supreme Court’s action establishes a precedent that goes against the Constitution.

The ban on the prominent lawyer, imposed on Thursday, January 18, was a response to what the Supreme Court described as his consistent, objectionable practice of making controversial remarks against the court and its judges on different media platforms, including social media and broadcasts.

In a concise two-page letter directed to the senior counsel, the Apex court additionally prohibited employees of Ahmednasir’s law firm from submitting cases before 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,” Letizia Muthoni Wachira, the Registrar of the Supreme Court noted in a statement.
