Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has now supported deputy president Dr William Ruto's position on ill-motives of the flopped Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum bill 2020.
This follows after Mudavadi thrashed the essence of the bill and claimed that resources had unnecessarily been expended.
While speaking at a church service in Nairobi on Sunday, Mudavadi noted that the proponents of BBI disregarded the opinion of other leaders while crafting the same. He averred that president Uhuru Kenyatta and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) chief refused to listen to the input of others, making the process a one-man show. He argued that it was like a choir.
He opined that the process, besides leading to wastefulness of tax payers money, led to wastage of time, since it took three years.
According to him, BBI was a process meant to benefit politicians who were poised to share leadership positions and not Kenyans.
Mudavadi's sentiments are now similar with those of Dr Ruto who has celebrated the High Court and Court of Appeal's nullification of the same and grounds of its illegitimacy and unconstitutional approach.
This happens after the Court of Appeal upheld the decision of the High Court which invalidated the BBI referendum after establishing that the process that led to its conceptualization was illegal and unconstitutional.
