President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner Raila Odinga will carry the last laugh after it emerged that parliament has prioritised a bill that will lay the legal basis for the Building Bridges Initiative report.

This is a great win since the bill needs to have been enacted by the time the certificates of endorsement are sent to the National Assembly by the speakers of the county governments that will have adopted the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2021.

Speaker Justin Muturi has since directed that the Bill by Justice and Legal Affairs Committee JLAC be prioritised, and if possible be merged with one by the Constitutional Implementation Oversight Committee chaired by Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni.

“Even though there was no agreement on which Bill takes priority, there was an agreement on the effect of the amendment and there is a report to that effect,” Amollo said.

This means that no Kenyan can raise a legal challenge in court to the effect that the referendum might find itself being stopped by the Judiciary since the timelines will have been observed by all the parties involved.

However, a cannot ruling had already set aside the planned referendum after certain groups moved to court restraining the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC from moving on with the Referendum until the case is heard and determined.
