Yesterday, Attorney general withdrew building bridges initiative report pettition from highcourt and opted for appalate court way. This happened after he filled astay order on Sunday challenging the rullig made by the high court, which rulled that building bridges initiative was unconstitutional.
Well, just aday after filling his pettition in acourt of appeal. The lawyers representing one of the petitioners has protested the move made by attorney general. He has claimed that his client was already served with papers ready for response. The lawyer has claimed that , according to the law, the court ought to pronounce itself on the question of cost before granting leave to the matter filled by attorney general. The lawyer is also demanding that the case be heard on 21 may 2021 before the Appeal.
"LAWYERS involved in the BBI Constitutional Case write to court, protesting that the AG CANNOT withdraw Application of Stay without Leave of the Court and COSTS. Interesting" posted Denis Itumbi.
President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga are doing everything in making sure that the bill goes through. The only thing standing on their way is the court. Leaders allied to the duo have been attacking the judiciary claiming that it's out to sabotage the whole process on revenge to the executive.
Well, let's wait and see if the court will allow BBI to proceed or not. Share with us your views on the issue.
