Aukot fails to stop BBI Reggae

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) team is legally constituted and will not be dismissed, the High Court has ruled.

Making the ruling yesterday, Justice John Mativo said President Uhuru Kenyatta is within his powers to choose a team that will steer the country towards good governance, promotion of devolution and accountability.

Thirdway Alliance, a party headed by Ekuru Aukot, had sought a dismissal of the team.

Dr Aukot argued that the appointment of the Yusuf Haji-led team was not subjected to public participation.

However, Mativo ruled that the team is ad hoc in nature hence the public’s input was not required when it was being constituted. 

He also said its members need not be vetted before appointment.

The judge also ruled that the State has not misused public funds in the BBI project.

"I find that this case fails in its entirety and I dismiss it,” declared Justice Mativo.

The 14-member task force's term was extended in January.
