Building Bridges Initiative Judgment

5th April 2022

We are proud to announce that OurVeryOwn George Oraro, SC and Radhika Arora were part of the team representing the Attorney General of the Republic of Kenya in the recent landmark Judgment touching on the applicability of the Basic Structure Doctrine within the Kenyan jurisdiction.

In setting aside the holding of both the High Court and the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court agreed with our arguments advanced on behalf of the Attorney General and held that the Constitution of Kenya 2010 is self-governing and incorporates a rigorous, tiered amendment procedure under Chapter 16 of the Constitution, thereby negating the need to impose an extra-constitutional doctrine which limits the amendment powers conferred on the people of Kenya.
