The raging war of words between affluent city lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi and Nyando-based veteran blogger Robert Alai seems to have no end in sight.
In the latest exchange of banter between the two frenemies, the accredited Senior Counsel launched a scathing morning attack at the Raila Odinga sympathizer and belittled him as an academic dwarf devoid of the capacity to sit on the same table as him.
Grand Mullah, as he is affectionately known within his private social circles, was referring to an earlier luncheon with his fellow learned friends Prof. Makau Mutua and Donald Kipkorir.
Abdullahi revealed that during the meeting which elicited heavy reactions on social media, the three were engaged in real cultured discourse.
He then sneeringly challenged Alai to organize a similar discussion but that of “unschooled Kenyans” without any formal education like himself.
He additionally made fun of Alai’s higher education credentials and claimed that he got his “funny” degrees courtesy of Jubilee Party’s “adult education” initiative.
“Yesterday we had a cultured discourse ya wasomi, Makau Mutua Donald Kipkorir. Can Robert Alai organise a similar discussion of unschooled Kenyans like himself who have no formal education?” he wrote.
But in his own defence, Alai quickly fired back and rubbished Abdullahi’s claims that he has no formal education.
In a reply to the lawyer’s tweet, he clarified that he is in fact a Computer Science graduate.
Sending back a piece of his own ruthlessness, Alai also made not that, unlike Law, Computer Science is an engineering and not an arts degree.
During the discussions held on Friday 17, December 2021, the three closely associated lawyers announced they had decided to stake their money in the hotly contested 2022 presidential race.
While Kipkorir and Mutua have openly declared to be behind Raila, their counterpart has been a diehard fanatic of the deputy president.
Through his Twitter page, Kipkorir revealed they had settled on Sh3 million as their stake money, stating that whoever loses pays the one whose candidate will have carried the day.
Mutua on his hand, promised to court Ahmednassir to the ODM side even before the elections day.
