The Supreme Court has started the hearing of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) petitions which were filed after the High Court and the Appellate court struck out the Bill.
Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki moved to the Supreme Court in September to challenge the decision by the Appellate court to affirm the nullification of BBI.
A physical meeting will be held with all parties involved in the case on Tuesday during which direction on the hearing will be given.
Through Solicitor General, Kennedy Ogeto, the Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki said, they were challenging the finding by the majority of the Seven-Judge Bench, which held that the Basic Structure Doctrine is applicable in Kenya.
In the verdict, the judges ruled that despite BBI being fashioned as a popular initiative, it was initiated by the president, essentially losing out on the popular initiative drive.
