President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday faulted the Judiciary over a recent unfavourable ruling that stopped ‘BBI reggae’.
In his address during the Madaraka Day celebrations in Kisumu, the Head of State said the High Court-judge bench didn’t consider the burden of choice while declaring the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) process unconstitutional on May 13.
“If the Court had considered the burden of choice the Judiciary would have asked its self various questions before dismissing the bill,” President Uhuru Kenyatta said in a thinly veiled attack on the third arm of government.
He went on to cite the nullification of the August 2017 Presidential results a move that forced the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to conduct a fresh election days after declaring Uhuru winner.
The President said through such orders, “the Judiciary has tested our constitutional limits”.
“Our constitution is not a yoke around our neck but a mighty sword in our hands to break chains that limit us,” he added.
