How President Uhuru Reacted After The Court of Appeal Buried The BBI Yesterday

On Friday, the Kenyan Court of Appeal upheld a ruling by the Kenyan High Court declaring the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) unconstitutional, null, and void.

The seven-judge panel decision elicited mixed reactions from political leaders, who took to social media to express their approval and disappointment.

Raila Odinga, the leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), was among the first to react, welcoming the court's decision even before it was formally issued.

Raila stated that the BBI is a journey rather than a destination.

“ Today's Court of Appeal decision is not the end of the conversation, and the parties involved will each make their own decisions on how to proceed in light of today's decision. But we feel compelled to move on,” Raila said.

Raila's venomous remark contradicts what his handshake partner, President Uhuru Kenyatta, said in State House, Mombasa. President Uhuru had a stake that BBI will go through as he urged OKA principals and Raila Odinga to be united ahead of 2022.

According to sources, Uhuru, who was closely monitoring the appellate court proceedings while surrounded by aides, did not say anything after the ruling.
