Court Of Appeal Says BBI Report Is Unlawful And Unconstitutional Therefore It's Null And Void

The Court of Appeals upheld the Supreme Court's decision that the BBI was invalid and that its procedures were unconstitutional.

In a public hearing on today, a panel of seven of the seven judges, led by Court President Daniel Musinga, entered the BBI process, declaring several unconstitutional and illegal sections.

The judges, however, overturned part of the Supreme Court's order, including one alleging that President Uhuru Kenyatta had violated Chapter Six of the Constitution.

All the judges agreed that this framework works in Kenya.

However, 5 judges confirmed that the basic doctrine of the framework limited the power to amend the constitution. Judges Okwengu and Sichale argued.

All judges also unanimously ruled that public proceedings could not be taken for granted, Judge Tuiyott denied.

All the judges also agreed that the president had no authority to introduce constitutional reforms.

"The whole process has not worked and I am finally happy that we have kept the constitution sound and safe and so far and so it can remain," said Judge Patrick Kiage.

The judges also appeared to be pushing for a amendment to the Constitution through a popular system and making it more difficult to amend the country's supreme law.

Many have accused the President of embarking on a popular program but common man should bring about a change in the constitution but not president.
