"About time lawyers did away with the colonial wig."

"He doesn't look like a swot.. let alone a PHD. No thick black rimmed spectacles, piercing eyes or sombre mood.. .. ". Reminds me of the time our former CJ's earring became a major disruption in the judiciary (and country) Some equated it to witchcraft. .."

"Haile Selassie Jah Rastafari wolan shantadad!"
