Senior Counsel Ahmednassir Abdullahi who has lately been a critic of the Kenya Kwanza administration and its policies on Thursday, February 1, 2024, woke up a changed man.

The lawyer not only supports the deployment of Kenyan police officers to Haiti against a court order but seeks to interpret the ruling for those who might have doubts.


In a tweet Thursday morning Ahmednassir wrote: “Justice Chacha Mwita didn’t prohibit or outlaw the sending of a contingent of Kenyan policemen to Haiti. He merely held that the law and procedural processes weren’t adhered to. In my view, an appeal to the Court of Appeal is wholly unnecessary and time-wasting (in light of Haiti’s dire needs). The government needs to correct the procedural missteps and follow the due process of law as ordered by Justice Mwita.”


On 23 April 2023 when the Cabinet Secretary for Interior announced that the government had decided to send a contingent of policemen to Haiti, Ahmednassir Abdullahi was one of the first critics of the move.

On that day he tweeted: “Waziri has no idea how powerful these gangs are. I thought sending soldiers or policemen to foreign countries needs cabinet and parliamentary approval.”

Two days ago Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi opposed a parliamentarian’s proposal to cut the Judiciary’s budget over unfavourable rulings on the housing levy and the Social Health Insurance Fund (SHIF).

What has changed with SC Ahmednassir Abdullahi?

One, the Grand Mullah is one of Kenya’s most astute schemers. Right from the days when he took up commercial litigation for ex-president Daniel Moi’s vast financial empire to the run-up to the last General Elections when he cosy-ied to the Kenya Kwanza political wing, he always plays smart.

Two, the Grand Mullah is at war, yet again, with the Judiciary and getting the Executive on his side could be a big plus.
