President Uhuru Kenyatta signed the Political Parties (Amendment) Bill 2021 into law on Thursday, January 27.

The President signed the contentious bill just a day after the Senate voted unanimously in favour of it on Wednesday, January 26.

The bill was initially passed by the National Assembly in a chaotic and violent manner, with the house adjourning several times.
