The High Court will today deliver the much anticipated ruling on President Uhuru’s security law which the opposition CORD and Kenya National Human Rights Commission has disputed as unconstitutional. The law was passed in a riotous parliament which has seen three opposition MPs suspended from parliament.

The ruling was to come last Friday but was pushed forward as the judges claimed they were not ready and would deliver it this morning.

On Friday, a parked court waited anxiously for the ruling only to be informed there will be no ruling. A five judge bench presided over by justice Isaac Lenaola is expected to give the contested law life or ultimately declare it a nullity.

Observers claim the judges may expunge just sections of the law which they dim unconstitutional and let the others remain. Both sides have already indicated they intend to appeal the ruling should it be unfavourable.
