Popular social media lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi on Friday expressed his disappointment with lawyers from the lakeside region after the hearing of the petition came to an end.
Ahmednasir in his tweet claimed that majority of the lawyers who represented the Azimio presidential candidate Raila Amollo Odinga were Luos while his boss Ruto was represented by a few from the Kalenjin region.
“90% of Hon Raila’s legal team were from Luo Nyanza. 5% of president elect William Ruto’s legal team were Kalenjin.” Tweeted the lawyer.
90% of Hon Raila's legal team were from Luo Nyanza.
5% of President Elect William Ruto's legal team were Kalenjin.

However, these sentiments did not go well with Kenyans who had the following to tell Ahmednasir Abdullahi:
“Wewe enda kamua ngamia, stop profiling luos. Hii ujinga utaacha. They went to school and that’s why they were contracted,is @philip_murgor a luo? He is a competent barrister, not yapping on Twitter like you, arguing with school dropouts no wonder u think u are on the top.”
“Luo lawyers: Kibe Muigai, Pheroze Nowrojee, Julie Soweto, Jackson Awele, Velma Maumo, Prof. Ben Shihanya, Dan Maanzo Tom Macharia. Winnie Makaba, Jerusah Michael, Deborass Bubi, Geoffery Sore, Naila Salim, Tabitha Wathuti, John Njomo, Jacquline Njoroge, Speranza Nywaira, Kinyua.”
“Nyanza produces the finest minds, Kalenjin produces the best runners/marathoners. How do you compare those two🤔🤔🤔”
“Let us not blame them. It may be necessary,when they retreat to explain to their client in a clear language that he may understand…But we still have to give it to the Lakers,they have brilliant legal minds,even as we acknowledge the fresh minds in our legal fraternity.”
“What is wrong with 90% of Railas team coming from Nyanza if they are the best. The proved the same to @ahmednasirlaw in 2017 the he could not attempt the same in 2022.
@,@ahmednasirlaw has became a failed pirate lawyer who is a UDA blogger under @OleItumbi.”
“So should we mop the whole Indian ocean because you boycotted Law classes and therefore couldn’t see even the supreme court gate?”
” Stop right there; Baba has never been tribal! Oh by the way, why do you like profiling Luo people? I believe you can do better. I would have been concerned if the legal team included incompetent individuals, but that was not the case.”
“They are lawyers GM your colleagues. Do you classify, profile your clients based on tribes too?”
“He doesn’t want to accept the fact that most Luos are top notch lawyers. What a shame.”
“Truth be told am a Kale lakini those men from the Lake are top notch in the brain. You can’t compare the academic knowledge of kalenjins and luos na si kwa ubaya. Am glad our fellow blogger Ahmednasir has admitted they are the best”
“i understand where Abdullahi’s bitterness is coming from imagine just when you thought you were the best lawyer in Kenya going by your tweets then Boom both Raila and Ruto ignores you like plaque.”
