The controversial new education curriculum CBC rolled out a few years ago is facing tempests. The new program faces several obstacles, including teachers shortage, insufficient infrastructure, and a lack of tutor training.
Now Nelson Havi, the president of the Law Society of Kenya LSK, fresh from winning against the BBI at the Court of Appeal, has divulged that he has received instructions to challenge CBC in court. According to Havi, he will seek the court’s interpretation of whether it is related to the Basic Structure Doctrine. Furthermore, he wants to know Attorney General Kihara Kariuki's thoughts on the same. "I propose to proceed from a point of knowledge of the Government’s position on the matter," tweeted Havi.
BASIC STRUCTURE DOCTRINE
The fundamental framework concept is a legal principle stating that some elements of a sovereign state's constitution cannot be modified. India, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Uganda, and Kenya all recognize the doctrine. The doctrine is a judicial innovation designed to prevent parliament and the government from abusing the power of amendment.
