Politicians across the political divide are still weighing in on the nullification of the BBI process by the High Court judges.
Leaders allied to President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga criticized the High Court ruling, claiming that the judges acted to deny citizens their right despite endorsing the report.
Pokot South MP David Pkosing was not left behind in calling off the judges. The Jubilee legislator stated that the judgement was driven by Uhuru's failure to appoint the 41 judges to both the High Court and Court of Appeal after advisory by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).

A publication by the Nation reports that Pkosing termed the ruling as an attempted coup, and the judges were not in order to make such ruling since the Head of State was not in any trial.
"A judge cannot rule on a matter like Chapter Six of the Constitution, which was not sought out for by the petitioners. It is impossible to accept the High Court ruling as objective rule of law, never. It was too personal. Was the president on trial, no? The ruling was an attempted coup in a civilian democracy like ours. It must be reversed immediately,” said Pkosing.
Pkosing's remarks comes after BBI co-principal Raila Odinga confirmed that they would be proceeding to the Court of Appeal, maintaining that, "nobody can stop reggae."
