    Back in Kenya, the president is yet to speak on the BBI ruling after a court declared it null and void.

    On Thursday, May 13, a five-judge bench ruled that the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 is unconstitutional due to a number of illegalities within the bill and the entire process that came up with the bill.

    The ruling was made by Justice Teresia Matheka, Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Jairus Ngaah, and Chacha Mwita.

    After the shock ruling, BBI Secretariat chairman Junet Mohammed and the team vowed to appeal stating that they would continue to promote the constitutional amendments bill until it was ratified by Kenyans.

    "As law-abiding leaders, we respect the decision of the courts but we don't agree with it.

    "We are setting up a legal team to look into and appeal the ruling. In the meantime, we assure all Kenyans who believe in the BBI and it's promise not to give up. It's not over yet," Junet stated.
