Supreme Court enjoins CIC, LSK in Senate petition
17 June 2013, 18:16
Nairobi - The Supreme Court has allowed two institutions to offer their advice in the dispute between the Senate and National Assembly over devolution and allocation of funds to county governments, Daily Nation reports.
A two judge bench of Justices Jackton Ojwang and Mohammed Ibrahim admitted the Constitution Implementation Commission (CIC) and the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) to the petition by the Senate seeking an advisory opinion on the legality of the Division of Revenue Bill.
The judges however declined to admit the Attorney General as amicus curiae, ruling that he is unlikely to be non-partisan in the dispute when it is clear he gave his advice to President Uhuru Kenyatta before he assented to the controversial Division of Revenue Bill.
