If the Supreme Court rules in favor of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has stated that he will be at the forefront of fighting for it. Kuria stated in a statement on Thursday that the main flaw in the constitutional amendment drive was the process, not the content. “It was never the substance of BBI that was the issue; it was always the procedure. The Supreme Court’s decision today will serve as a panacea for all process flaws “he stated
“The process will be cleansed if the SC rules in favor of BBI. I’ll be one of the first to press for immediate deployment.” His comments came just hours before the Supreme Court is due to rule on the BBI. The initiative was declared null and void by both the High Court and the Court of Appeal. Letizia Wachira, the registrar of the Supreme Court, said on Monday that the court would rule on the Building Bridges Initiative on March 31.
The Supreme Court will rule on at least seven significant questions brought by the lower courts, while also declaring the entire process null and void. They include whether Kenya’s basic structure applies, whether the President can initiate a popular initiative legislation review, and if he can be sued personally. The Supreme Court will also decide whether the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission was legally constituted when it adopted the Bill, as well as whether the new 70 constituencies proposed are valid.
