Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu has alleged that the Judiciary is the 'most irresponsible,' the country have ever had since it is causing legal crisis in the country, days after the Court of Appeal upheld decision by High Court concerning the unconstitutionality of BBI.
Speaking from his office on Tuesday, the Jubilee MP argued that the ruling by the two courts that the IEBC did not have enough quorum to carry out its duties, might lead to the postponement of the 2022 general elections.
In his argument, Wambugu recalled an advisory by the former Chief Justice David Maraga that the president should have dissolved the parliament since it had failed to observe the constitutional order of one third gender rule.
He added that in case the president decides to dissolve the parliament right now, the elections in 2022 will not take place since the needed commissioners by the IEBC will not have lawmakers to vet them, and hence delay the polls.
He also argued that the nullification of the BBI was a solution to the one third gender rule, and in case the legislators are send home after the nullification, there is no guarantee that the gender rule would be observed.
