Kenya’s Deputy President allies have overwhelmingly celebrated the court ruling that nullified the Building Bridges Initiative bill.
A five-bench court on Thursday, May 13, unanimously declared the BBI process and the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 unconstitutional, illegal null and void.
The allies majority of whom voted NO to the bill in the National Assembly and Senate flooded social media to congratulate the bench for ruling in their favor.
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen took to his official social media to celebrate the judgment saying the five judges are part of the few remaining Kenyan prophets who have not bowed down to Baal.
“When the history of Kenya is properly written, the contribution of Justice Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Jairus Ngaah, Chacha Mwita, and Teresia Matheka will be written in golden latters. They are part of the few remaining Kenyan prophets who have not bowed down to Baal. God bless you,” he said.
Nominated senator Millicent Omanga who was among the 12 senators who voted against the bill said she knew she was on the right side of history.
“Following court ruling on BBI…Proud to be on the right side of history. May the Almighty be praised,” she said.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi on his part said the Reggae has been stopped urging President Uhuru Kenyatta and other pro-BBI supporters to fully abide by the Constitution of Kenya 2010.
“This is now the Kenya we want. Please Uhuru Kenyatta and Gideon Moi families give us a break. We are all equal under our Constitution of Kenya 2010. You miht push an agenda but surely you must accept we are all equal,” Sudi said.
Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale while celebrating the ruling wondered what president Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake counterpart Raila Odinga were thinking next.
“Listening to these 5 patriotic judges in their ruling on the BBI. I wonder what is going on in the minds of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga who have been running roughshod on Kenyans, the MCAs who were bribed a cool Sh 4.5 billion and MPs and senators who voted like robots I wonder,” the Bull fighter said.
“The end result of arrogance and spiteful pride, a lesson to the men who vied power that it helps to listen to honest advice. Tonight, I sleep fully convinced that there is hope for Kenya,” said Kithure Kindiki.
Mithika Linturi said, “As I said, we have to prioritize what benefits the people not what benefits us as politicians. Thank you, High court, for saying NO to BBI.”
