The long awaited and decisive BBI appeal ruling is still in the hands of a seven judge bench within the Court of Appeal. This is what Kenyans, among them supporters and critics, should know as learned friends go about the verdict.
Live screen airing of the court proceeding have attracted thousands of Kenyans with a keen eye on arguments that lead to the BBI verdict.
List of 7 Court of Appeal judges in BBI appeal ruling
The court of Appeal appointed the following judges to deliver the final ruling on the ongoing BBI case.
- Fatuma Sichale
- Francis Tuiyott
- Gatembu Kairu
- Hannah Okwengu
- Justices Daniel Musinga
- Patrick Kiage
- Roselyn Nambuye
Notably, each of the seven judges will finish reading their own judgement before a verdict is provided.
So far, the chances of the courts dropping or upholding the BBI remain even.
In an event that the decisive BBI appeal ruling is null for the second time, proponents including President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Amollo Odinga will need to move to the Supreme Court.
