The landmark High Court judgement against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) has rightly been hailed as the unprecedented judicial triumph it is. Still, Prof Makau Mutua argues, the judgement presents Kenya with a unique political crisis. The era of ethnic Kingpins is ending and 2022 might make 2007 look like a walk in the park as the country lurches into the elections with a deligitimised political elite, hollowed-out constitutional bodies – in short, a vacuum of legitimate governance institutions creating a petri-dish of political crisis for Kenya.
