Exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has sent a harsh warning to the Court Of Appeal ahead of next week Wednesday when they will issue directions on BBI.
Miguna argued that the five-judge bench High Court ruling that declared the BBI process null and void is the most consequential judgment to ever been delivered in the entire world for a very long time.
He has since warned the court of appeal to don’t dare touch or alter the ruling on BBI.
“The Constitutional Court of Kenya’s LANDMARK decision on the #BBIFraud is the most CONSEQUENTIAL JUDGMENT in the entire world in a very long time. In the USA, it can only be compared to the LANDMARK BROWN v. BOARD OF EDUCATION of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 (1954). Don’t dare touch it,” Miguna stated on Twitter.
Miguna has been on the ‘NO’ side of BBI since it onset describing the Constitutional Amendment Bill with all kinds of shaming words. The High Court ruling that squashed the whole process terming it unconstitutional gave Miguna more bragging rights.
But now, he was to wait for a fresh fate of BBI.
Court of Appeal announced a three-judge bench that will sit next week on Wednesday to give directions to parties in the BBI case.
In a letter to parties on Friday, the deputy registrar Court of Appeal M.K. Serem says there will be three judges who will handle the case management.
Several respondents including Economist David Ndii who are against BBI had asked the Court of Appeal President Justice Daniel Musinga to constitute a seven or 11-judge bench to hear the appeal.
Serem said the directions are in relation to the letters that were sent to the court and addressed to Justice Musinga.
Serem told the parties that he had been directed to inform them that there will be a case management conference on June 2, 2021, which will be held physically before three judges.
The directions also state that the case management shall provide an opportunity for the judges to give appropriate directions on various issues including if they will hear the substantive appeal or applications for stay.
