Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi on Friday trolled human rights activist Boniface Mwangi on Twitter after the latter posted a picture of himself and rapper Ice T.
The lawyer then wondered whether the former Starehe MP aspirant had paid for his air ticket or a ‘benevolent donor’ footed the bill.
Ahmednasir later accused the ‘Unbound’ author of receiving huge chunk of money from westerners, ‘promising demonstrations against corruption.’
“Takes days to prepare for an appeal in the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court so that a lawyer earns decent fees. Boniface Mwangi on the other hand will write a one page letter begging a benefactor in the West promising demonstrations against corruption and he gets $$$,” the lawyer said.
Not one to go down without a fight, Mwangi accused the senior counsel of being ‘a big thief, a land grabber’ who likes to launder ill gotten wealth.
I see you have decided to troll me. Does my success hurt you? I paid for my own ticket. You see, unlike you who works for the corrupt and land grabbers in this country, some of us earn our living honestly. With all your corruption money, you lack class!

KoT also weighed in on the issue and had this to say:
Boniface, please come back with a new one! This one is tired. Plus it's 'to-go-to' not 'to go to'. You just accused @ahmednasirlaw of making spelling mistakes, remember. Stay afloat in the game. Nice day.

Mwangi is a fourth form struggler and sc is a masters degree holder and a former law school Dean. I don't even know what they are arguing about. Boni should be herding SC's goats and camels.

Soooo @bonifacemwangi writes one page paper and gets genuine money and on the other had you take days to prepare and loose your cases and still take clients money. But still @bonifacemwangi is the bad guy?
