Age Limit Removal is Unconstitutional, Justice Kenneth Kakuru
Below is a statement by Justice Kenneth Kakuru on the constitution ammendment:
“I declare that the entire amendment was unconstitutional and should be declared null and void. The petitioners shall be paid costs as directed by the Deputy Chief Justice.
I have no evidence that the army and police would have come to Parliament if the MPs did not behave like that. They called it upon themselves. In my humble view, the Speaker of Parliament should have adjourned the house and denied the suspended MPs access. Members of Parliament who were manhandled are at liberty to seek redress.”
