Already political analyst Prof Edward Kisiang'ani and lawyer Ahmednasi Abdulahi have suggested that the Supreme Court should give direction on what will happen to the BBI report

This comes at a time when the political class is divided into two sides, with some politicians pushing for a parliamentary implementation while others want a national debate.

Barasa, an ally of Deputy President William Ruto has suggested that the document cannot be taken through a referendum due to lack of a referendum law, and now wants the courts to be consulted to offer an advisory on the debacle.

"In the absence of a referendum law, I strongly feel the Kenya Judiciary should offer an advisory on how we proceed after BBI Launch. I will make this happen shortly," he tweeted on Monday.

The lawmaker is part of the group that has insisted that the document is better taken through the parliament, and the billions set to be used in the referendum utilized alternatively.

But this suggestion has not gone down well with their colleagues allied to ODM leader Raila Odinga, who say that the report must be owned by Kenyans through a referendum.

However, both sides have largely accepted contents of the report, which include introduction of the office of the opposition leader and that of the Prime Minister.
