A day after ODM Leader Raila Odinga expressed his disappointment on BBI court Ruling, Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi has backed up his sentiments.

In a statement, Raila said the ruling was disappointing but an appeal will follow. He urged respect and restraint from attacks on the court.

On Sunday Maangi said those not satisfied with the Judgment should exercise their right of appeal even up to the Supreme Court.

“The statement by H. E. Raila Odinga is the right approach. Let those not satisfied with the judgment exercise their right of appeal even up to the Supreme Court,” He said.

He said respect for the outcome by Raila Odinga was sobering and a welcome departure from those threatening the Judiciary.

“The assurance that they will respect the outcome is very sobering and a welcome departure from those threatening the Judiciary,” He added.

The 5 high court Judges said the Constitution amendment Bill known as the Building Bridges initiative was irregular, illegal, and unconstitutional.

The Judges further said President Kenyatta had fallen short of integrity and had violated the constitution by initiating the bill himself instead of an ordinary Citizen.

The BBI propellers have however maintained that the BBI is still alive and the reggae will resume after they have appealed.
