Gatundu South lawmaker Moses Kuria has Moses Kuria has sent out a passionate appeal to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga following yesterday’s court decision that declared the BBI process illegal.
Kuria made the plea just a few hours after Suna East MP Junet Mohammed made it clear that the BBI team would challenge the ruling in court, vowing that reggae will go on.
Taking to social media, Kuria opined that Odinga belongs to the democratic side and should return to where he belongs.
He added that individuals whom he did not name are making the ODM party leader look bad, insisting that the opposition should redeem himself as he is not a baron.
“Dear Raila Odinga. You dont belong to dictatorship. You belong to democracy. Come back home Baba. Redeem yourself Baba. You are not a robber baron Baba. They are making you look bad Baba.” Kuria wrote.
The Gatundu south lawmaker has been on a celebrating spree following yesterday’s ruling made by a five-judge bench that declared BBI illegal, stopping what was popularly known as reggae.
He has taken to social media periodically serving his celebratory messages and tackling BBI proponents in well-written pieces.
Attorney General Kihara Kaiuki is reported to be preparing an appeal that will see the matter move to a higher court in a bid to restart the BBI reggae.
Through Solicitor General Ken Ogeto, the AG has vowed to appeal the decision on the basis that the BBI process is a matter of national interest and is backed by over 3 million Kenyans making it a popular initiative.
In this regard, Ogeto filed an application on Thursday seeking to have the High Court ruling on BBI suspended in order to allow the AG file an appeal.
“It is in the public interest that pending the filing of the Appeal and to enable him to exercise his right of appeal, an interim stay of execution of the judgment be hereby stayed.
“The Hon AG is dissatisfied with the judgment in its entirety, and he has firm instructions to move to the court of Appeal to challenge this decision. The public interest is a serious consideration in considering a relief in a matter such as this. I urge your honor to grant a stay of your judgment,” Ogeto’s application read in part.
