Speaking at Friends Church Central International  Nairobi yesterday Musalia Mudavadi stated that he had raised concerns over some BBI proposals . The ANC leader   indicated  that he had  warned the Burning Bridges Initiatives(BBI) proponents, President  Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga of its possible downfall from its birth that is three years ago .

“I had warned of some clauses during the launch of BBI one on November 27, 2019, at the Bomas of Kenya, which could hinder it from going far. They never listened,” he said.

Having raised concern over the Judiciary Ombudsman the party leader had this to say, “I cautioned and I said that if you want to make the Executive appoint an ombudsman to the courts you will be interfering with the independence of the courts. You are interfering with the basic structure and the principles of the Constitution,” .Mudavadi further  argued that the   independence of the Judiciary had to be safeguarded from the Executive .

The ANC leader revealed that he had urged president Uhuru to open a window and actually put into consideration the various opinions that the other leaders had which had  emerged during the unveiling of the final report at Bomas of Kenya. Their opinions however were futile since the BBI sought to amend Article 172 of the Constitution to create the Office of the Ombudsman, whose office holder shall be nominated by the Presidents. This proposal provided that the ombudsman   sweeping powers to discipline Judiciary officials, including suspending, warning, and reprimanding them.

“What I said in Bomas two years ago was exactly that the judges pronounced in their judgment. The issue of the independence of institutions is paramount and must be handled carefully,” he said.  Lack of inclusion by the president and ODM party leader was noted to be a major cause of the abrupt stop of Reggae as it is commonly  known on the streets despite the huge amount of time and resources that were all put into place.

The ANC leader went ahead to urge the leaders to listen  and work with one another since that was one vital lesson that had been learnt thought the two rulings. “Let us do things correctly, moving forward,” he concluded .
