Lawyer Ndegwa Njiru 'Surrenders' After Justice Daniel Musinga Said This While Delivering His Ruling

Vocal and BBI defender Lawyer Ndegwa Njiru has admitted that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) is going nowhere after the President of the Court of Appeal Justice Daniel Musinga addressed the issue of Ombudsman.

Giving his ruling, Musinga argued that the proposal was a way of the Executive to interfere with the functions of the Judiciary.

" If the creation of Judiciary ombudsman is not executive interference, then I do not know what constitutes interference. It is not difficult to discern that in making judicial pronouncements most judges will be cautious of going against the will of the President as he who pays the piper calls the tune."

Njiru through his Twitter account stated that the judges opposed the BBI as a way of protecting themselves from the BBI proposal.

"It's now understood from the PRESIDENT J. HON. MUSINGA'S judgment that the judges have COALESCED to SAVE themselves from the JUDICIAL OMBUDSMAN AXE. isorait tuachie MUNGU."

Other issues Musinga agreed with High Court include- That the president was initiator of the BBI Constitutional change Bill, the BBI secretariat has no constitutional mandate to initiate chances via the popular initiative, public participation was not sufficiently conducted among others.
