Today the supreme court resumed the hearing of contentious Building Bridges initiative document after Attorney General and IEBC appealed the rulling of the appellate court. In a bizarre incident, Martha Karua and her group storm out of the court.
Taking to her official Twitter handle, Martha tweeted "We walked out of Supreme Court Kenya judiciary BBI appeal after the court made a decision to exclude our clients the 74th,75th &76th respondents from highlighting their submissions"
The Supreme Court hearing on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) appeal began with impassioned arguments about time allocation to various parties.
The supreme court established rules last week giving the appellants and principal respondents 45 minutes and the rest of the parties 15 minutes to deliver their arguments.
However, both appellants and respondents, who were both represented by lawyers today, maintained that the time allotted by the court was insufficient to present their views.
Do you think BBI will be passed by the supreme court? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
