BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,13TH MAY 2021-A five-judge bench of the constitutional court on Thursday night  poked holes in the Building Bridges Initiative sponsored constitution amendment process.

In a move seen to defend the constitution and sovereignty of the people of Kenya, the judges shredded the process to the extent of terming the BBI Steering Committee unconstitutional.

Judges Prof Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Jairus Ngaah, Teresia Matheka and Chacha Mwita said President Uhuru Kenyatta does not have the power to directly initiate constitutional amendment under the law since parliament is the only organ with that power.
