The masses who matched to Mukuyu market at the outskirts of Murang'a town lauded the decision by the court to cushion wanjiku from the huge cost that the BBI through a bloated national assembly would add to them.
Yesterday, the court in a landmark ruling barred the President or any State organ from instituting Constitutional changes through a popular innitiave.
The court further ruled that the BBI task force which was appointed by President Kenyatta was unconstitutionally constituted.
The Court barred the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission from acting on the BBI because it is not fully constituted. It also directed that there will be no referendum until mass registration exercise is conducted by the commission.
The ruling came as a big shocker to the proponents of the BBI led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. The amendment Bill was anticipated that it will proceed to a referendum after the President assented to it.
This week, the senate passed the amendment Bill after the National assembly passed it.
