aturday, May 15, 2021 -A section of top Lawyers have allegedly refused to participate in overturning the High Court decision on BBI.
In their efforts to appeal the ruling made on BBI illegalities by the five judges, BBI promoters are already planning to troop to court to make sure the Thursday May 13 ruling against BBI is quashed.
BBI task force further threatened to prepare their watertight defense which they want to submit to the Appellate Court and news reaching this desk indicate that some of the influential lawyers who have been key in the past presidential petitions have been approached to help but they have reportedly declined.
According to digital activist and Deputy President William Ruto’s blogger Dennis Itumbi, some of the lawyers who blatantly rejected to participate told their bosses that they can’t effectively challenge their own images in a mirror.
“The Hustler Nation Intelligence Bureau (HNIB) can report that today, the illegal Building Bridges Intiative (BBI) has reached out to some top lawyers. All the THREE declined taking the brief,” he tweeted on Friday May 14.
If what blogger Itumbi has claimed turns out to be true, this would be a big blow to both Raila Odinga and his Handshake partner Uhuru Kenyatta.
Some of the prominent legal names that highly featured in the last two presidential petitions are Lawyers Fred Ngatia who was lead counsel for President Uhuru Kenyatta; while on the NASA side were Lawyers James Orengo and Otiende Amollo.
In the landmark five judge bench ruling, Justices Chacha Mwita, George Odunga, Joel Ngugi, Teresia Matheka and Jairus Ngaah quashed the desire to amend the Constitution of Kenya by the BBI team by terming it an unconstitutional process.
