Attorney General Githu Muigai has launched a scathing attack on a section of lawyers who do not appreciate and follow the rules and standards of arguing a case in court.
Speaking while making his submissions at the Supreme Court as an interested party on Thursday, the AG rued the fact that the law profession is now faced with the difficulty of a new crop of litigators who do not recognise civil procedures.
“They don’t recognise the evidence act, and they don’t recognise any procedural legislation. These are what the old professor’s used to call ‘adjectival law’. It has been thrown out of the window,” said Muigai.
In a bid to annihilate two election petitions that seek to nullify President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win in the October 26 repeat presidential election, Prof. Muigai said that the petitions “have not met the burden of proof and are based on mere litany of complaints”.
