“It is a good day for the people of Garissa and I want to thank all the people who prayed for us. It has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that the will of the Garissa has been upheld by the court,” said Duale after the ruling.

Farah Maalim is one of the confused politicians in this country, it’s even hard to pinpoint what he stands for. Aden Duale is not an angel but I would better stick with a devil( Duale) with a stand than an angel( Farah Maalim)without a stand..— La Revolt (@PhilRevolt) February 27, 2018

“Farah Maalim” PAY PAY PAY,Computer generated leaders?,the judges of this country and the whole judiciary too is showing us that it has lost faith with the CJ @dkmaraga— nduhiumutitu (@nduhiumutitu) February 27, 2018

“Farah Maalim” Garissa just wants strong leaders like @HonAdenDuale though he is a scorer for our rivals, 2022 we will give them Sultan mwenyewe @HassanAliJohofor President— Henry Oduor (@HenryOduorBlog) February 27, 2018

Farah Maalim been talking on TV shows of how NASA is over & WIPER will be out soon, little did he tell her he had his own battles. In any case, enigmatic Raila would not have gone to campaign for him even if he won the petition, would have lost terribly again !!!— #Ungovernable? (@KenyanTaxPayer) February 27, 2018
