Good News To BBI Supporters as Latest Move by High Court Emerges

Building Bridges Initiative had suffered a blow initially after a 5-judge bench said the amendment bill was null and void and hence it could not proceed to referendum. Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki had filed for an appeal immediately after the ruling.

According to the Star Newspaper, a five-judge bench in the High Court ruled that the application that was filed by AG Kihara was certified urgent and that means it will be considered an emergency.

It further gave a direction to all parties involved that they should serve their written submissions to the filed application by Thursday this week.

"The court will give a ruling based on the written materials placed before it by email on Wednesday, May 26," the court ruled as quoted by the media house.

In the case AG wanted the High Court to stay the implementation of judgment that was issued on Thursday last week that stopped the process of changing the Constitution through BBI.
