Breaking :BBI is unconstitutional, court of appeal declares

The building bridges initiative has been declared Null, void and unconstitutional by the judges of the court of appeal. The president of court of appeal has declared this by upholding the ruling of the high Court after nullifying it.

Most of the judges said that the president Uhuru Kenyatta is not a Wanjiku thus not allowed by the Constitution to start a constitution amendments. They also said that the amendment was mostly done by executive than the Supreme power of the people of Kenya.

Date May 13, 2021, the High Court judges Justices Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Jairus Ngaah, Chacha Mwita, and Teresia Matheka listed key issues to determine the eight consolidated petitions that challenged the BBI process, top being whether President Uhuru Kenyatta could initiate a popular initiative as the Head of State, and thus nullifying it.

The Deputy president William Ruto will gain alot after the ruling was made by the court of appeal and this has made the proponents of BBI to have a bad time.

Many Kenyans across the country are very happy about the ruling made by court of appeal.
