In response to President William Ruto's plan to modify the constitution to include the job of opposition leader, the opposition side has continued to voice disapproval.
According to credible sources, President William Ruto's proposed constitutional revisions are opposed by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), who declares them to be unconstitutional. Following that, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) asked the Parliament to uphold the rule of law.
Our source claims that resistance has been shown to President William Ruto's intention to change the constitution to establish the Office of Leader of Opposition. President of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), Eric Theuri, urged members of parliament to reject the motion because it was an attempt to sneak BBI into the country. In light of the high expense of living, Theuri contended that the idea was unconstitutional."The amendments are being introduced by the president contrary to the decision in the BBI case and therefore should not see the light of the day there being a clear precedent set by the court," he said.
On other sides some Political analyst agrees with LSK saying that Ruto is trying to bring back the BBI, Ruto’s proposal to create office of the opposition leader is clear indication that BBI was good."This tells us that the BBI tune was better than it sounded, the proponents of BBI only lost the politics of it but not the substance of the recommendations" Kidi Mwaga during NTV morning brief.
