The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has accused the head state President William Ruto of having plans to revive the Building Bridges Initiative(BBI) which was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. This was after President Ruto proposed that the constitution needs to be amended so that the government can set aside the office of the official opposition leader.

The LSK president Eric Theuri challenged Ruto's proposal by alleging that the constitutional amendment is not of any importance to Kenyans who are struggling with the cost of living. They called the Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula and the members of parliament and urged them to block the proposal.

"The amendments are 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 LSK president Mr. Theuri.

Theuri alleged that the Parliament should exercise their duties as stated in the constitution to ensure that the people Kenya are served well by their representatives.

The move by President Ruto to have the opposition office has been opposed by many Azimio lawmakers alleging that it will be of no use. Others alleged that its a move by President Ruto to control the opposition Raila Odinga and to tie him to specific tasks as the opposition.
