The Legislature said that the judges did a recommendable job and have made the public happy .

” I want to commend and celebrate the Judiciary for deciding to stand with Kenyans, I want to tell them that they have redeemed Kenya from the circles of dictatorship , as the members of parliament we have been intimidated and our positions in committees were taken for not standing with this unconstitutional amendments ” she said

The MP also said that he is happy that the court realized that there was many loopholes in the whole process which lacked the lacked legal framework that was going to handle the process.

She said that president Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM Party Leader used public money illegally without legal framework that helps them to draw money from public adding that the president is indulgent by Court to have breached integrity and leadership provisions test of the chapter 6 of the constitution of Kenya which is possible to impeach him with this pronouncement.

“President should be number one to defend and protect the Constitution,”she said.

South Mugirango Mp Sylvanus Osoro said that every person was happy since some where vindicated for opposing the process leading them to suffer from committees in the national assembly .
