It's a VIOLATION of an EXPRESS provision of the CONSTITUTION for a Senator of the LOWER HOUSE to appear in a court and represent a client…it is unheard of…members of the National Assembly don't appear in our courts…shows the Senate is idle…@lawsocietykenya pic.twitter.com/NCk0qP3ypC

On their defense, Mutula Kilonzo Junior of Makueni said this.
The mishandling of and dramatic airlifting of Govenor Sonko & front page spread in all newspapers has not served any purpose other than make him a hero ! The court day will be a scene from Hollywood.
