Supreme Court Has Issued Directions On The BBI 3 Days Hearing

Lawyers opposing or supporting the Building Bridges Initiative have been challenged by the Supreme Court Judges, chaired by Chief Justice Martha Koome, to come properly prepared, disclosing what will happen.

According to the Judges, what should be understood is that the period of stay in hearing the case on the Building Bridges Initiative from both opposers and supporters would be as brief as possible, with each lawyer from each side receiving forty five minutes.

However, Chief Justice Martha Koome and other Supreme Court Judges have advised those opposed to the Building Bridges Initiative, as well as those who support the constitutional amendment bill, to be more prepared to defend themselves on the Basic Structure Doctrine, stating categorically that they should be able to explain whether it applies in Kenya.

" The Supreme Court judges said they decided to come up with seven issues on which they will allow parties to file their submissions in support or against. Key among them is the Basic Structure Doctrine and whether it is applicable in Kenya, " read the report in part Cleophas Malala, whom he regards as a personal friend, has already expressed his opposition, and Kenyans will be eager to hear from him at the gathering. .

Another point of contention in the argument will be the requirement for the judges opposing the Building Bridges Initiative to explain the court' s finding that the President lacks the authority to undertake constitutional amendments.

The news comes as Honorable Musalia Mudavadi, the head of the Amani National Congress Party, prepares to shock Kenyans and other lawmakers on January 23, 2022, when he hosts an Amani National Congress Party gathering to discuss the way forward. Kenyans, on the other hand, are left to speculate what Mudavadi will say, but no matter how hard we try, only he knows the truth. Mudavadi, who is known for his toughness, will be expected to demonstrate it on that specific day.
