The aftermath of BBI appeal and details revealed as judgment Day to be communicated later

The building bridges initiative appeal that was taken to the most high court had attracted alot of interest from senior citizens. The ammendments in the bill had attracted alot of traction from the political class which ended up in courts and declared the bill unconstitutional.

Both the high courts and the courts of appeal gave quite a well outlined judgement with a large volume on the reasons why they believe the document was not constitutionally constituted. Battles between words rented the air as advocates argued either supporting the two courts or opposing them in equal measures.

The supporters of the bill together with their promoters argued that the president can initiate a popular initiative which was strongly opposed by the courts. Advocates argued today that the bill failed on arrival since proper public participation was not conducted and most of the proposed articles were left out.

Nelson Havi argued that the whole process was meant to change the basic structure of the constitution which would make it useless within a very short time.
