Court of Appeallete Justice Daniel Musinga has issued a clarification that there was no error in the court’s ruling against the BBI.
Last week, Linda Katiba lobby group had written a letter seeking rectification of the final BBI Appeal ruling delivered by the court over claims that some sections were erroneous.
The lobby group, through one of its lawyers, Morara Omoke, argued that some sections of the final ruling presented to them did not match what the judges read while delivering the ruling.
The group gave an example on the issue of whether the proposed BBI referendum should be one main question, or separate individual proposals, noting that they believe there was an error in the total tally of judges who voted for and against the issue.
The group wanted the court to review and revise the ruling to provide clarity and avoid any future appeals on the issue.
In its response, the Court headed by Justice Daniel Musinga, noted that there were no errors in the final ruling, thus no need for any corrections.
“I have been directed by Justice Musinga to inform you that there is no error in the final orders, and respectfully, no correction is necessary,” a letter sent to the lobby group by Lorraine Ogombe, the Deputy Registrar of the Court of Appeal read in part.
The clarification by the Appellate Court dims President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga’s hopes to redeem the BBI reggae at the Supreme Court as they were banking on the error to make a comeback
