The High Court of Kenya on Thursday delivered a landmark ruling on the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020 which is commonly known as the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum Bill.

The five judge bench comprised: Justice Joel Ngugi, Justice George Odunga, Justice Jarius Ngaah, Justice Janet Mulwa and Justice Chacha Mwita.
