President William Samoei Ruto has been criticized by the Law Society of Kenya after pushing to amend the constitution claiming that this is unconstitutional and the way of reviving the rejected BBI route.
President of the Law Society of Kenya Eric theuri yesterday requested the national assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula and Members of the Parliament block the proposal made by the President, saying is not a priority for Kenyans to change the constitution instead of helping them to fight the high cost of living.
Mr Theuri accused the President of re-introducing the Building Bridges Initiative (BBl) that the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional.
"The amendment is being initiated by the President contrary to the decision in the BBI case and therefore they should not see the light of day in Parliament there being a very clear precedent set by the court," said Theuri.
