In what is appearing to be a battle of professionalism, these two legal experts are exciting the nation who have expressed anxiety to see who is the baddest in the legal ring.
Senior Counsel James Orengo who is acting for Deputy Chief Justice Philomena has objected to queens counsel Qureshi Khawar prosecuting the case.
James Orengo is bitter of being challenged by Khawar Qureshi that is why he wants him barred from listening DCj Mwilus case

Come on, let both Khamar Qureshi and James Orengo face off in the DCJ Mwilu’s prosecution. None deserves to get barred. 🙇

The senior counsel argued that the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji usurped the powers of the attorney general in making the appointment. He also said that the professor of law from Cambridge University did not have a valid certificate of admission to practice in Kenya.
“Although the Attorney General has the discretion to do so, he has to do more than writing a letter ….it must have evidence in regards to the role of advocates,” Orengo said.

The High Court responding to lawyer James Orengo, who is appearing fo..r the DCJ and wanted the Queen’s Counsel Khawar Qureshi stopped from prosecuting Mwilu’s corruption case on grounds that he didn’t produce a certificate of practice, granted his prayers.
Senior Counsel James Orengo Seems to be shaken by the Move of the DPP to hire Khwar Qureshi. Meanwhile the DPP Noordin Haji doesn’t want James Orengo to represent DCJ Philomena Mwilu. Let the Games begin.

In a battle of wits, Secretary of Prosecutions Dorcus Oduor said the prosecution would apply to have lawyers Okongo Omogeni and James Orengo disqualified from the defence team because as senators, they enjoyed parliamentary privilege to question the DPP in Senate Committees which amounts to conflict of interest.
James Orengo ,why are you afraid of this elite?? DCJ MWILU must face it. We are fixing Kenya.pic.twitter.com/Q15x8WNXey

Justices Hellen Omondi, Mumbi Ngugi, William Musyoka, Francis Tuiyot and Chacha Mwita directed the matter to be heard on January 17, 2019.
The court further directed the defence to file a formal application within 14 days. The DPP was also given a similar period to respond.
