Senior Counsel Ahmednassir Abdullahi has reacted to Deputy President William Ruto’s statement which he made referring to AU Leader Raila Odinga using his position for the wrong reasons.
According to DP Ruto, when the government was negotiating for Raila’s role at the African Union it did not involve the trading of minerals or gold, it was a clean deal.
“The deal we negotiated for Raila Odinga as AU Infrastructure representative did not include prospecting and sale of minerals.” Said Ruto

He further added warning the culprits involved in the gold scam to stop dragging President Kenyatta’s name in the scam.
In his response, SC Ahmednassir noted that the DP should be careful with his words which can eventually put him in trouble.
“DP RUTO is simply too BRUTAL..in law he can be charged with MURDER for his statement satisfies the legal prerequisite to commit MURDER…which in law is called “MALICE AFORETHOUGHT”
