The BBI appeal case entered the third day today for the third hearing as the lawyers from the opposing side continued defending the decision of the court of appeal and the high court who nullified the bill terming it as unconstitutional.
One of the senior counsel member representing the BBI opposing side Dr. John Khaminwa talked about the bill revealing that president Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta proposed Constitutional amendment because of his thirst for power stating clearly that Uhuru had a plan of getting Kenya back to 'Nyayo' error where the president had powers over every arm of the government.
Dr. John Khaminwa recalled a story of his friends who were tortured and others killed during the Nyayo regime. He emotionally said that remembering such stories make him shade tears. Holding a book he stated that the book contains the dark side of Nyayo's regime that forced many of his friends to travel out of the country after saying the truth about the government.
He clearly said that passing the BBI constitutional amendment bill will drive Kenya back to Nyayo regime where the president will deny many people the freedom of expression and the president will have power over all systems of governance.
