Lawyer Charles Kanjama Gives a Summary of What to Expect From Supreme Court Over The BBI Appeal

The Supreme Court will from Tuesday January 18 hold a three-day sitting over the Building Bridges Initiative appeal that was submitted by the Attorney General Kihara Kariuki, IEBC and Lawyer Morara Omake after High Court and Court of Appeal termed its process as unconstitutional.

Giving a detail report on what Kenyans should expect, Constitutional Lawyer Charles Kanjama said that the seven judges of the Supreme Court will be expected to be on the bench, with a ray of lawyers representing the three petitioners giving their submissions.

"The sitting will begin with the appellants, after which the respondents will also present their arguments. The appellants say that the two courts were in error by saying that the BBI report was unconstitutional, and that they will be persuading the court that BBI is constitutional and therefore should be allowed to proceed," said Kanjama.

He went on to state that the Supreme court decision will be the final, and that the judges will be expected to give clarity on any other future attempts to change the constitution via a popular initiative.

The also said that there are no time constraints on when the court should give their ruling following the three day hearing.
