Supreme Court Judge falls ill, skips court session
Supreme Court judge Justice Mohammed Ibrahim has been taken ill.
Chief Justice David Maraga made the revelation after the start of the final day of submissions from lawyers appearing for various parties in the ongoing presidential petition filed by Nasa at the Supreme Court.
The CJ did not reveal what Justice Ibrahim was ailing from.
“…as we speak he is being attended to by a doctor. So because of the pressure of time, we have to go on without him. So we’ll start as we planned yesterday. Mr (Fred) Ngatia I don’t know whether it’s you or Mr Ahmednassir (Abdullahi), you can start,” said Mr Maraga.
Mr Ngatia and Mr Abdullahi are holding brief for President Uhuru Kenyatta, whose reelection has been challenged by Nasa’s Raila Odinga.
