Tiaty MP William Kamket has called upon the judges who will be deciding the fate of the Building Bridges Initiative today at the court of appeal to base their ruling on the interests of Kenyans but not based on political views.
The KANU MP who is one of the vocal BBI proponents noted that the document has a number of benefits to Kenyans and the judges should take their time and go through it carefully before making any ruling.
He noted that counties need more funds which is a requirement in the BBI and also an increment of goodies targeting the youth. Moreover, he said that the provision in the constitution amendment bill which allows members of parliament to be ministers will cut expenditures and will also foster accountability in the ministries.
Kamket who was speaking on Monday after launching a new library at Tangulbei High School in Tiaty lashed at the political leaders who are opposing the BBI document and termed them as enemies of development, he urged Kenyans to support it fully so that they can enjoy its fruits.
A seven-judge bench has been constituted by the President of the Court of Appeal justice Daniel Musinga to hear the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) case.
The hearing of the appeal has been scheduled to take place for four days consecutively from June 29-July 2, 2021.
