ODM Party leader Raila Odinga has expressed his disappointment with the court ruling that declared the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) and the Constitution Amendment Bill, 2020, unconstitutional.
In a statement issued on Saturday, Mr. Odinga said they would appeal the High Court decision to annul the BBI process.
“…I want to address myself to Thursday’s ruling of the High Court on the Building Bridges Initiative and the Constitution Amendment Bill, 2020. Supporters of the Constitution Amendment Bill, including myself, have been disappointed by the High Court ruling. However, I urge restraint in the public commentary about the ruling,” reads the statement.
“We will calmly and respectfully move to the Court of Appeal to present our case as to why we think the High Court did not render the right verdict.”
The ODM Party leader, however, urged the public to be cautious while commenting on the ruling that outlawed the BBI.
“I want to urge that we restrain from personalized attacks on the court and its members. We may disagree with the court but we must respect its ruling and its freedom to exercise its judgment as it understands the legal and constitutional matters before it,” added Mr. Odinga.
