last week was a very eventful week in the legal field, as the BBI appeal case finally took off at the Court of Appeal.
Indeed, for those of us who are not so “learned”, the submissions by the legal teams fighting for, and against, the BBI offered many learning moments and a deeper insight into the thinking behind the Initiative.
It was also an inspirational week for legal career hopefuls, seeing the brightest minds, including a former Attorney General, former Justice Minister, and senior counsels at work.
Further, it reminded us of the excitement that surrounded the 2017 Election appeal at the Supreme Court where the beef between the Executive and Judiciary originated.
Despite all the hype, we do hope that the Appellate Court will make a fair and objective decision in August, and more importantly, that the party affected negatively by the outcome concedes defeat peacefully.
Let our politicians keep in mind that we are already in the electioneering period and their actions as early as now will determine the atmosphere in the country ahead of 2022.
