Nandi residents have lauded the High court ruling on the Building Bridges Initiative Bill saying it has affirmed that nobody is above the law.

Speaking to journalists in Kapsabet town, led by former councilors they revealed that the entire issue of the BBI was not constitutional and that it was meant to benefit the interests of a few people thus the high court ruling is a good move indicating the independence of the judiciary.

They lamented that the entire BBI process was unconstitutional as it was conducted in a way that did not involve the public participation thus the high court has exercised its independent role in nullifying it.

“We are happy with the five bench judge of the High Court for their hilarious decision which has defended the constitutional rights thus signifies no one is above the law,” they said.

The judges ruled out the BBI Bill and its process to be unconstitutional on grounds that the process was not people driven.

The court also ruled that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission(IEBC)  was not properly constituted due to its quorum.
