On 29th October 2020, the High Court of Kenya at Nairobi declared 23 laws, including the Finance Act 2018 and the Insurance (Amendment) Act 2019, passed by the National Assembly unconstitutional. The Constitution requires the Senate to be involved in discussions of bills concerning counties before they are passed into law, which was not done in the case of the 23 laws. However, the court suspended the orders nullifying the laws for a period of 9 months from the date of the judgment within which the National Assembly is required to regularize the laws. Should they fail to do so, the laws shall stand nullified.
