Change of Tune Top Global Law Experts Seek to Join BBI Battle

The legal battle over the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) set for the Supreme Court has attracted top foreign constitutional law experts.

Prof Albert says the Bill isn't as expected comprehended as an established revision, but instead as "a protected dismantling" because of the immense number of proposed modifications and the substance of the changes.

"The Bill looks to change the Constitution of Kenya in a manner that surpasses the limits of the current constitution. The Bill is 45 pages altogether, it contains 74 correction articles, and it incorporates two Schedules affixed to the fundamental text," he says.

In the event that the BBI Bill is eventually taken on, he contends, its many alteration articles will influence practically the total of the Constitution, successfully leaving none of the current laws unaltered either explicitly or by suggestion. That isn't crafted by an established revision, he says.Prof Albert and Prof Roznai mean to address the court on five inquiries each corresponding to the sacred alteration.

This is in opposition to the contention held by Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki, who needs the Supreme Court to pronounce that the Constitution doesn't have an essential construction.
