Sections of the parliamentary powers and privileges act declared unconstitutional

The High Court has declared sections of the parliamentary powers and privileges act of 2017 as unconstitutional opening a new battle front  between the judiciary and parliament.
The affected sections annulled by Justice John Mativo protected  members of parliament from being served with court orders within parliamentary precincts while barring anyone from challenging house committee deliberations in court.
National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has however dismissed the ruling saying the courts are acting out of ignorance as parliamentary immunity is guaranteed under the constitution.
