During the BBI Appeal hearing at the court of appeal, the Judges ruled that there were sections of the Constitution that were unamendable. During the submissions, several lawyers had argued about the application of the basic structure doctrine to the Kenyan constitution.
The Upcoming BBI Appeal hearing at the Supreme Court will finally give Kenyans the opportunity to understand the basic structure doctrine by listening to submissions by the greatest legal minds in the world.
Two of the best Law professors of our time have applied to be the Amici Curiae (friends of the court) in the case. Professor Richard Albert from the USA and Professor Yaniv Rosnai from Israel will no doubt help decipher the Basic Structure Doctrine Concept that proved to be a tall order for our very own Orengo and Otiende.
The two professors have written extensively on the subject. The likes of Orengo quoted their works during their submissions.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
