"We confirm that the bill is unconstitutional, and it is null and void." Were the words from the five judges bench of the High Court who ruled against the Building Bridges Initiative bill.
This came as a huge blow to President Uhuru Kenyatta and his counterparts Raila Odinga and their legislatures for the failure of the passing of the bill.
This came as some bad news to Kenyans who were supporting the constitutional amendment bill, but it was some good news to others who were against it.
Today, according to sources, large masses of Murang'a residents took to the street to celebrate the good news from the High Court.
The celebrations from the residents of Makuyu, the outskirts of Murang'a were overjoyed and criticized the idea of amending the constitution without involving Kenyans.
However, these celebrations might be cut short as the BBI team have promised to make a huge comeback as they will push for the passing of the bill.
Take a look at photos from the celebrations:
