Court Ruling On IEBC Comes To Haunt Kiambaa By-Election

Lawyer Morara and Senior Counsel Ahmenasir Abdullahi were on NTV yesterday tearing through Court of Appeal ruling that sent Building Bridges Initiative bill parking after High Court ruling that declared BBI unconstitutional, null and void was upheld.

Court of Appeal pointed at grey areas in the document before issuing a ten hour ruling. According to lawyer Morara, Kenyans win big from the ruling while politicians who think they can change the Constitution to suit their Political needs becomes the losers and casualties. Reacting to the ruling, Senior Counsel Ahmenasir Abdullahi said that the winner is Ruto urging Uhuru to concentrate on the matters that affect Kenyans like Covid-19 pandemic and economy as this is one basis on which the court faulted BBI.

“Let him stop running around with Raila promoting BBI, it is dead and the sooner they realise so, the better," the Jubilee supporter said. The program's host and NTV news anchor asked Senior Counsel Ahmenasir whether the ruling on IEBC that it did not have quorum can affect recently conducted by-elections like Kiambaa. In his response he said that the Court of Appeal distinguished between “composition" from “quorum" but now IEBC is properly constituted.
