BREAKING NEWS: Court declares BBI process null and void!

Thursday night, 13th of May 2021 is a day that Raila Odinga, President Uhuru Kenyatta and their allies will never forget. This was after court stopped BBI reggae by declaring the entire BBI process, steering committee unconstitutional.

The High Court annulled the BBI referendum process, upholding a consolidated case filed by eight petitioners and said that the initiative violated the constitution.

According to Justice Jairus Ngaah, the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) is Uhuru Kenyatta’s project.

“A constitutional amendment can either be initiated by a parliament or popular initiative.

“It is clear that BBI bill is an initiative of the president… the president is not an MP, cannot directly purport to initiate a constitutional amendment,” said justice Jairus Ngaah.

According to judges, the the entire BBI process so far is null and void. Permanent injunction has been issued against IEBC taking any further process.

This is a very big blow to Raila Odinga and allies as they were very much sure that the bill would pass via the referendum. Nobody saw this coming. More
