Raila Now Admits BBI Is Dead As He Comes Up With A New Plan

Raila has started giving up on the BBI which was slightly taken to a short brake by the High Court and is now before the Court of Appeal. This happens as Raila is still waiting for the final decision which will determine the next step for BBI.

Speaking yesterday, Raila killed the hope of Building Brigdes Initiative supporters claiming the Court of Appeal might probably reject the BBI appeal. He hinted at having an alternative plan should the Court of Appeal uphold the High Court ruling that nullified the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). 

According to Raila, his team is already contemplating and analysing a different approach to enacting the initiative. Synonymous with his style of keeping Kenyans anxious over his plans and political cards, the enigma declined to reveal his plans. 

“Should the courts dismiss the BBI appeal, we have an alternative route to effecting the constitutional reforms,” Raila Odinga stated. 

Nonetheless, he reiterated that the clamour for a constitutional amendment and the referendum was timely and inevitable, declaring that “BBI remains unstoppable, no matter what happens.” 

The Court of Appeal led by President Justice Daniel Musinga, is expected to deliver its ruling on August 20, after listening to the appeal between 29th of June and July 2. President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila are hopeful that the seven-judge bench would overturn the High Court ruling.
