Kenyans took on Twitter to hilarious react to his statement and here are the sample tweets.
"This one is dead on arrival, I think ODM should be represented by not even James Orengo I think honourable Milly Odhiambo should be able to outsmart you. We wish you well on your internship program in the court of Kenya. Na usisahau ulishawai lala supreme Court!!" wrote Hillary Odhiambo.
"This will confirm whether you studied law or the law studied you," wrote Fred Obera.

"These MPs who hired have already lost, fate sealed. It will be just a PR exercise, lost the moment they hired you," posted Ben Maina.
"I just feel like this is an internship program for you Mhesh. No offence" wrote Wandera.
"With u as the lawyer against Orengo en Amollo; My brother this case is dead on arrival. The only argument u can win is defending Ruto on TV," said Abdihakeem Jamack.
"Your clients? This is laughable. You have never represented even a cockroach before leave alone human being. We can't even waste senior counsel's @orengo_james time to deal with [email protected]_Owino will be enough to send you back to the sender," said Mutwiri.
