What you need to know:

  • The Senate wants the court to declare that the disputed bills are unconstitutional.
  • Outside the courtroom, Mr Murkomen said the Senate is committed to safeguarding devolution, protecting interest of Kenyans as well as that of counties and their governments.

The case in which the two Chambers of Parliament have dragged each other to court over the enactment of 24 bills without following due process will be determined by a bench of not less than three judges.
