Nairobi, Jan. 28 -- A case seeking to block President Uhuru Kenyatta from extending the mandate of the task force set up to spearhead the implementation of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) will be heard today (Tuesday).

This comes after a High Court judge recused himself from handling the case and instead placed it before another judge.

While declining to have the matter referred to the Chief Justice to constitute a bench to hear and determine the case, Justice Weldon Korir said he was ready to recuse himself if parties were dissatisfied with his decision.

Justice Korir, who heads the constitutional and human rights division at the High Court in Milimani, set the matter to be heard by Justice John Mativo on January 28.
