There has been several allegations that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) is experiencing challenges as it heads towards referendum. This was after ODM's James Orengo alleged that that there are people trying to take over BBI. Few weeks later, blogger Denis Itumbi has made fresh allegations about the same.
According to Itumbi, one unnamed Cabinet Secretary attempted to take charge of BBI by-election scheduled for next month. The CS summoned some Nyanza politicians and gave them instructions on what they should do.
The CS went ahead and even used the president's name saying he had consulted him and they were in agreement.The politicians therefore listened, then after the meeting they went to ODM leader Raila Odinga to give the new direction. They took the initiative and asked for his view.
However, Raila was furious about the whole idea and asked them to ignore the CS. He ordered them to continue with what they had planned. ODM has stood on ground tgar referendum must happen.
What do you think about the whole idea? Feel free to share your views.
