Attorney General Paul Kihara Kariuki has finally withdrawn a notice of motion application that he had made at the Kenyan High Court.
This is despite the court having set aside May 26th as having been the day that the matter would have been decided upon by the High Court.
"Take Notice that the Honourable Attorney General hereby withdraws his Notice of Motion Application dated 14th May 2021 as he is desirous of invoking the concurrent jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal to seek similar reliefs,"part of the withdrawal reads.
On Sunday, Attorney General Paul Kihara had filed a notice of appeal against the High Court ruling that declared the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) unconstitutional, null and void.
In his petition, Kihara said he was dissatisfied with the court's decision and further filed an application for stay orders against the execution of the Thursday judgement until his appeal and application are heard and determined.
On Tuesday, a five-judge bench had certified as urgent an application by the Attorney General that seeks to have the judgement on Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) stayed pending appeal.
While giving the directions to the parties involved in the matter, the court on Tuesday directed that applicants should serve their written submissions by close of business this Thursday with the other parties directed to file and serve their submissions by the end of Friday.
