Testimonials and Commendations
Dear Dr Muthomi Thiankolu,
I want to express my admiration for your recent legal battle, which I followed closely for two days. The Meru County evidence presented by you and your team clearly showed that the Governor had violated the law. It is unfortunate that the honourable men involved could not see the gravity of the situation. The issue of Kibiri was misunderstood, leading to emotional reactions. The Meru County government, under the Governor, is hindering progress in development. Despite the Senate’s decision, it wasn’t about gender but about character and leadership values.
As someone who has witnessed your growth and career development since our time at Miathene Secondary School, I take pride in your achievements. I pray that God opens higher gates for you, as your success is a community success. Keep soaring, and may success continue to accompany you, Daktari!
I vividly remember our school days, where your passion for debates and drama stood out. Your mastery of the Queen’s language was unmatched, and I often reminisce about how you competed with Carlpeters Mbaabu in battles of wit. Your journey to becoming a lawyer was destined, and I have great stories to share about our school days when your biography was written. May God continue to guide you.
Wow!! Muthomi, you and all your friends and family must be very proud. Your BBI submissions and the Hydra monster reference remind me of a Lord Denning-style quotable. Congrats on all your success from me, the President of your Canadian fan club!

I watched you represent the Meru County MCAs in the just concluded case against the banana girl. You did very well. I pray that justice will be served in the near future. Why was the Chair of the Senate Committee so hostile towards you? I did not like the way he treated you throughout the presentation, like asking to apologise even when there was no mistake.

The hostility from the Chair of the Senate Committee also baffled me, as I had never met him. I got the impression that he had a brief to interrupt my thought processes constantly. The sad bit is that he was legally wrong on most, if not all, of the interjections and reprimands that he constantly threw my way. It reached a point where I contemplated reminding him that he was a gynaecologist and I was the lawyer. I only refrained from such a retort because lawyers are professionally trained to avoid altercations with judges, magistrates and other adjudicators to avoid jeopardising a client’s case. So, I was constrained to maintain my calm by saying I was guided when it was the Chair of the Senate Committee who required guidance. The Committee seemed to have taken the view that it would not confirm the impeachment long before the commencement of the trial.
The Committee’s hostility to the case had something to do with the timing of the impeachment proceedings (barely three months after the election) and behind-the-scenes political manoeuvres. The latter happens a lot in political disputes. The sad part is that ignoramuses who know little to nothing about law or the extra-legal dynamics are all over social media, casting aspersions on my handling of the matter.

Dear Dr Muthomi Thiankolu,
Good evening, my lovely son…I always cherish and esteem you for your firm stand in matters of law and natural justice, more so your inherited gene of patriotism and love for your people. From your father and good friend and brother Thiankolu Kaibi Thirua, I am told the School has taken a nosedive since our times, and the political leadership has since kept off, never wanting to be associated with the same. It is a pity and embarrassment that the Mbeu people have continued to be blindfolded with the proceeds of corruption, and they cannot see how far they have fallen. Mbeu Ward is twittering on the brink of the precipice unless they change the leadership narrative that has kept them down for many years. I am so happy for you as the leading light at this point.
I am happy that my people embraced me here and that I have led in KCSE for the last five years in my sub-county. I have sent 112 students to the university in five years, not counting tertiary institutions. I plead with you that if the Church is giving you the School in good faith, kindly take over as the chairperson for posterity. I believe leadership is shortly changing hands to provide a conducive environment for education and development…
May God bless you and your family always.

Dear Dr Muthomi,
Incidentally, in yesterday’s Kawira Mwangaza case at the Senate, I did not connect you with your excellent presentation in H. E. President Ruto’s Supreme Court case. I am so proud of your excellent presentation in the two cases. May God bless you abundantly…In the case of H. E. President Ruto’s case, you surprised seasoned senior lawyers like…and made them look like boys. I have just reviewed your Supreme Court presentation, and everybody, including the judges, is looking at you in amazement like a man who has come from the moon. Excellent work. I am so proud of you.
Greetings Dr. Thiankolu,
Thank you for your prompt assistance…Additionally, I take this opportunity to acknowledge the significant impact your teaching style has had on my educational journey. Your organised and structured approach to presenting information through well-prepared slides, coupled with the requirement for pre-class readings, has been instrumental in shaping my teaching methodology. Our 2014 class looked forward to the incentive you provided by awarding a printed version of the slides, in colour, to outstanding students who actively engaged with the required class material. As I navigate my teaching path, I find myself drawing from the valuable lessons learned in your classes, and I am grateful for the influence it has on my path to professional development.
