The five-judge bench on Monday ruled that the application was certified urgent in order for it to be considered on an emergency basis
They further directed parties in the case to file and serve their written submissions to the application by the close of business Thursday this week.
“The court will give a ruling based on the written materials placed before it by email on Wednesday, May 26,” the court ruled.

The AG’s office last week asked the High Court to suspend its decision that stopped the process of changing the Constitution through the BBI.
In the application, Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto filed a notice of appeal at the appellate court and are seeking to have the Constitutional and Human Rights Division at the High Court suspend implementation of the orders it issued.
Ogeto said due to public interest in the case, the court should suspend implementation of the orders.
