“BREAKING NEWS…. A technical committee of 14 under the auspices of the handshake initiative and the Office of the President is SECRETLY writing a new constitution for Kenya,” reads the tweet that tagged Makau Mutua among other close friends within the lawyer’s circle of trusted friends.”

Statehouse is yet to respond to the claims, placing Kenyans in an awkward position on whether the news were genuine or just but the normal strand of fake news or mere noise from DP Ruto’s lawyer
Every mad man has a point, since yours is futuristic i will hold reply and give u a benefits of doubts till that time, otherwise your just a noisemaker

Given the super connections Ahmednasir Abdullahi has within Statehouse and DP Ruto’s office it is expected that his tweet may have some truth. Ahmednasir was President Uhuru’s lawyer in both 2013 and 2017 presidential petition at the Supreme Court.
Similarly, the developments come at a time President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga have re-energized their spirits in the fight against corruption, especially in the Kimwarer and Arror dam scandals.
