Lawyers James Orengo and Otiende Amollo have sent a strong message to fellow lawyer Kipchumba Murkomen that his victory is almost a fantasy.

This comes moments after their anticipated clash in court.

The two who doubles up as the Siaya Senator and Rarieda MP respectively sealed a major victory at the Supreme Court on Thursday.

They successfully pushed for the validation of Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti's reelection, alongside lawyer Tom Ojienda.

The legal minds form part of the opposition's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) legal team set to face off with Murkomen in court as he (Murkomen) seeks to protect two ODM parliamentarians from a looming expulsion from the party.

Malindi lawmaker Aisha Jumwa and Suleiman Dori (Msambweni) have since contracted Murkomen to represent them in court at a time when the party is seeking to expel them over contravention of party loyalty dictations.

However, through their win on Thursday, Orengo and Otiende have sent a strong message that beating them will be a very hard task, and are the most probable to record a victory.

It's worth noting that the team was also part of the over 20-lawyer team that represented opposition chief and ODM party leader Raila Odinga in his successful petition against President Uhuru Kenyatta's August 8, 2017 reelection.

Orengo led the team alongside John Khaminwa while Amollo provided the formula allegedly used to rig Raila out in the polls.

This is proof that Murkomen will be dealing with a supernatural team and has to do extensive warm up if he is to shake them in the house of justice.
