In their decision, the Court of Appeal deemed the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to be constitutional, upholding a May verdict by the Kenyan High Court.


The bill was struck down by a seven-judge panel in a decision that lasted the greater part of a day, with each judge reading their individual opinion.


Daniel Musinga, Fatuma Sichale, Gatembu Kairu, Hannah Okwengu, Roselyn Nambuye, Patrick Kiage, and Francis Tuiyott were among the judges.


The Basic Structure Doctrine applies to the Kenyan constitution, according to five of the judges.


Justices Nambuye and Sichale dissented, while Justices Musinga, Gatembu, Kiage, Okwengu, and Tuiyot supported the High Court's decision.

The elephant in the room is, can they push through after back to back defeats. Kindly share your thoughts and opinions.
