Hours after the High Court of Kenya delivered a ruling on the BBI declaring it illegal and unconstitutional, Canadian based lawyer Miguna Miguna now wants President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga arrested and jailed.
Miguna now wants the promoters of the constitutional amendment bill led by the president and the former prime minister held accountable for attempting to mutilate the constitution through illegal means.
“Now we must arrest, fine and jail conman, Raila Odinga, despot Uhuru Kenyatta,their cows and cowlings like Murathe, Atwoli, Junet, Kamanda and Company-INCLUDING @ Orengo James, and Otiende Amolo- because they knew the TRUTH but still supported an OUTRIGHT ILLEGALITY. Viva!” he tweeted on Thursday, May 13, night.
The man with the same name twice argues that the handshake partners knew the truth about the illegality of the BBI document and the process but still pushed it through.
This is after the High Court yesterday trashed the brainchild of the handshake constituted by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga as contravention of the law.
In their ruling the five-judge bench noted that the initiative was a president’s and never a majority opinion.
“The BBI was the president’s initiative which is contrary to Article 257 of the constitution. The task force that morphed to a steering committee was an unlawful and unconstitutional outfit. It was invalid from the beginning,” the judges said.
The five also faulted BBI promoters for failure to avail adequate copies to the public, adding that the electoral body did not ensure proper public participation in the process as it is constitutionally required.
They also noted that the current Kenyan poll body IEBC lacked a quorum to currently deliver on a popular process of constitutional amendment.
