In a bid to overturn High Court judgment on the building bridges initiative bill, the president and the former prime minister Raila Odinga has managed to recruit the senior counsel Senator James Orengo and his learned fellow Rarieda member of parliament Otiende Omollo, in joining the legal team determined in ensuring that the BBI sails through the court of appeal and proceed to referendum.
According to the Star, Uhuru and Raila ha been looking for powerful legal minds to join their team of lawyers lead by Paul Mwangi, to neutralize the bases used by the high court in declaring the BBI bill null and void. At the same time, Independent Electrol and Boundaries Commission will also be presented by the Attorney General Githu Muigai, after being ruled out to have insufficient staffs to conduct its affairs
Orengo and Otiende Omollo are now set to guide this legal team to secure a win having been in the record to have the ability to preside over cases as they did during 2017 when presidential elections were nullified. Unfortunately, the two remain on the record of disagreeing with the bill at the senate and parliament, with the claim that the bill has some issues that they should be allowed to make some changes.
Joining the team is a great burden for them considering that there are 21 points that the judgment was based upon and they have to brainstorm their minds concerning the law to overturn each of them, yet they are under pressure of a timeline that the judgment must be done so that if the bill goes through, the referendum will be done before its timeline elapses.
Do you think the two legal giants will be in a position to overturn the prevailing judgment I have on the BBI bill? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
