Ahemdnasir told off President Uhuru for crediting Njonjo for the 2010 Constitution.

Nairobi Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has joined a list of lawyers opposed to mourning Kenya's independent Attorney General positively.

The lawyer took on President Uhuru Kenyatta head-on over his condolences message following Njonjo's death suggesting that the President errored in his remarks.

Ahemdnasir told off President Uhuru for crediting Njonjo for the 2010 Constitution saying history speaks otherwise.

"'Kenya's progressive constitutional [2010 Constitution] and legal regime owes its robustness to Hon Njonjo's splendid work...' President Uhuru Kenyatta. President Uhuru should show some respect to HISTORY...and just for God's sake! @StateHouseKenya," he tweeted.

Besides, Ahmednasir also castigated Chief Justice Martha Koome because of the manner in which she also mourned the late Njonjo. 

He accused her of penning lies about Njonjo while heaping praises on the departed former State Attorney General in a condolence message. 

"It is very important for the Hon CJ to be truthful about the history...ALWAYS! To state on record that Charles Njonjo "...was a great encouragement to other members of the Black Bar" is a lie...and a cheap one at that!" he stated.

Other lawyers who criticised CJ Koome over her tribute include Prof Makau Mutua and Miguna Miguna. 

The two stated that the CJ errored in her condolence message by giving the deceased accolades he did not deserve.

Njonjo died on Sunday, January 2, aged 101.
