Uhuru Can Be Sued - Justice Fatuma Sichale

Court of Appeal Judge, Fatuma Sichale, has agreed with the High Court choice that President Uhuru Kenyatta isn't insusceptible to common procedures and can be sued. 

Sichale made the proclamation while reversing part of her judgment on Friday, August 20, during the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) request assurance. 

In her judgment, the Justice, notwithstanding, noticed that Uhuru is qualified for the insurance of the law, taking note of that the law ensures both the feeble and the solid, every one of them being Kenyan residents. 

"It wasn't right for the High Court to have continued with the consultation and, from there on, make unfriendly discoveries against H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta without finding out whether he had been served either with the appeal as well as the resulting hearing notification or hearing notification," she noted. 

On the President's job in the BBI cycle, she noticed that he is a cultivate of public solidarity and in the limit of the President can't participate in the mainstream drive measure. 

She added that the issue of check of marks isn't an arrangement choice that requires the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to be quorate. She added that IEBC, with three officials, can't be supposed to be illegal and that the Constitutional arrangements come first. 

"The check of BBI marks was not invalid and void for absence of majority, nor was it a capacity that necessary an arrangement choice," Justice Fatuma Sichale noted. 

"It should be ludicrous to guarantee that it should have five magistrates to be quorate. Checking marks isn't an arrangement choice."
