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.

Among the baffling judgements the court delivered was that BBI is an unconstitutional venture.

The court also delivered a ruling on whether President Kenyatta could be sued for the breach of the Constitution.
