The much awaited Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) appeal is set to kick of in less than two weeks. The Chief Justice Martha Koome led bench is set to hear and determine the final route the bill will take. The Supreme Court yesterday told complainants to file all their petitions as part of preparation for the case.
The appeal has however become more interesting after a number of foreign legal experts showed interest in taking part in the case. Professors Richard Albert of the United States, Yaniz Roznai of Israel, Rosanind Dixon of Australia, David E Landau of USA and Gautam Bhatia of India are set to participate in the case as friends of the court.

The learned professor says the bill seeks to transform the constitution of Kenya to an extent where the current constitution cannot.
