On Wednesday, November 4, prominent Nairobi lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi found himself on the wrong side of KOT (Kenyan tweeps) after pointing out a critical question about Citizen TV anchor Jeff Koinange’s posh car.
It all started after the talk show host posted online a video announcing an upcoming Country Music event and the Mercedes G-Wagon was also featured in the clip.
Abdullahi wondered on Twitter why the former CNN journalist drives a left-hand drive car in Kenya, whose laws are clear against the importation of similar cars since motorists drive on right-side of the road
“Jeff’s car is left-hand drive… I thought we have a legal prohibition on such imports…or is Jeff’s a special case?” the lawyer also known as Grand Mullah wondered.
The remarks elicited mixed reactions online with many Kenyans accusing the senior counsel of being jealous of the German machine, with some even noting that they suspected the same must have pushed him into importing a similar car.
“Stop incitement, your admiration for his ride made you buy your G-Wagon,” one of the posters said.
