Anglican Church of Kenya archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has asked the political class to respect the decision by the court as a show of respect to the independence of the judiciary. Archbishop ole Sapit was speaking during the ground breaking ceremony at Mbeere south cemetery complex where he maintained that respect ought to be paramount for every institution in the country.
Sapit said that even though the decision will affect 2022 politics, leaders have a responsibility to maintain sobriety in such discussions. “The high court’s decision was a landmark for this nation, that the court can independently make decisions independently and we have always been calling, all of us to actually respect decisions of independent institutions and protect those institutions so that they protect Kenyans,” he said.
This comes a time when mixed reactions are coming from different politicians whose main interest was for BBI to make through for their own personal interests.
Equally some politicians who still think that BBI can be revived are still threatening to make further to the Supreme Court where it will be the final stage after the court of appeal upholding the high court’s decision of nullifying the BBI initiative.
