The two want the High Court in Nairobi to stop the process until their case is heard and determined.

Thursday was not the first time that Mr Kamau Daniel Chege and Mr Cosmus Kipkemoi Ng’eno were going to court over the draft law.

They went to court on April 28, seeking to challenge the referendum law and yesterday they amended this and included a plea to challenge the question framed by IIEC.

Disagree

They say Section 37(3) of the Constitution of Kenya Review Act 2008 violates their right of expression.

They said the mode of voting, in which one has to say “Yes” or “No” is constraining as one might agree with some provisions of the draft and disagree with others.

The two said being required to agree or disagree with the entire document left them with limited options.

The two said their freedom of expression would be at stake should the court turn them down as the Attorney General would release the draft any time.
