3-Reasons Why The Supreme Court May Not Rule In Support Of The BBI Bill

Few days ago the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was brought to a stagnant state after the five commissioners declared the verification process as null and void.

Their move was supported by a good numer of citizens, amongst them, the deputy president William Ruto was also found to support the judgement that was passed by the five judges. Though those support the referendum, blamed the judges over the allegations that BBI was not the solution to problems facing kenyans.

Therefore, the judgement is expected to be addressed by the Court of Appeal on Thursday this week and it is my opinion that the Court may not rule in support of the BBI and below are reasons to support my opinion.

1. The current Constitution has no problems and kenyans are comfortable with it.

The 2010 Kenyan constitution is still working well and therefore, the Supreme court may not find possible reasons to support the referendum in order to do away with the current one.

2. The Bill is not a citizen-driven document.

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) is actually not citizen-driven bill. This is because the bill is not supported by every kenyan. This is a document that was initiated by two people His Excellence Uhuru Kenyatta and his Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga and they wanted people to support. Therefore, the Court may consider kenyan citizens' interest.

3. The BBI document has some errors that Uhuru and His Counterpart Raila failed to correct.

The document has divided objectives thus making it difficult to understand by many kenyans. The Bill outline the changes that should be done in the constituencies and wards, but this is the of the IEBC. If the court will identify such mistakes in the report, then it may not rule in support of the Bill.
