Experts Reveal Key Blunder Ruto Did that May See his Push for Constitution Changes Suffer BBI's Fate

As Ruto strives to make a few constitutional amendments, legal experts have opined that he already started off the journey on a wrong footing and may be walking in the footsteps of his former boss Uhuru Kenyatta. Experts think Ruto has already made a key blunder that may his efforts hit BII's dead end.

According to the Supreme Court's ruling on the infamous Building Bridges Initiative constructional amendment bill, the Supreme Court declared that is not a president's right to suggest suggest to the National Assembly on what to do about constitution amendments.

However, in a memorandum to the speaker of the National Assembly, president William Ruto urged the National Assembly to initiate a number of constitutional amendments mentioned therein. He mentioned a number of amendments he wished to be initiated.

This according to constitutional lawyer and advocate of the High Court Martin Oloo, Ruto is walking in Uhuru's footsteps. If the specific amendments suggested by the president are initiated then it may be taken that he cajoled the National Assembly to initiate the amendments. "He may be falling into Uhuru's pitfalls," warned oloo.

According to Law Society of Kenya president Eric Theuri, the proposals will suffer BBI's Fate going by the ruling on BBI. If the National Assembly goes ahead to pass the proposals, then the LSK will move to court.
