DAILY POST: DCJ MWILU fears KHAWAR QURESHI like “Jakadala”– These corrupt clowns have panicked –see what she said




Wednesday December 19, 2018-Embattled Deputy Chief Justice,
Philomena Mwilu, has protested the appointment of Queen’s Counsel Khawar
Qureshi to represent the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Noordin Haji.

According to Mwilu through her lawyer, James
Orengo, Attorney General, Paul Kihara Kariuki, unlawfully appointed a foreign
lawyer to represent the State in a Kenyan court.
“Whereas Section 11 of the Advocates Act empowers
the Attorney-General with the authority and discretion to appoint a foreign
advocate, the said powers should be exercised in compliance with all laws for
the time being applicable in Kenya,” Orengo said.
“By purporting to exclude Prof Qureshi from strict
statutory qualification conditions applicable to other advocates practising in
Kenya, the AG acted discriminatorily in abuse of power and discretion.” Orengo
added.
Mwilu further stated that Prof Qureshi does not even
have a work permit to enable him to work in the country, adding that his
exclusion from the relevant procedure is not justifiable in a free and
democratic society, so his appointment is unconstitutional.
Mwilu faces 13 charges relating to cash allegedly
received from Imperial Bank, which is now under receivership.
