Ruto's Allies Shift Focus To BBI Funds, Advice The Following

All the funds that have been allocated to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) popularization drive should be channelled into helping Kenyans as they continue to battle the tough economic times that are a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ruto's allies now say.

According to an article published by the Nation, the lawmakers allied to the Tangatanga faction now want the funds to be used in helping Kenyans sail through the tough economic times brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The amount in discussion amountsto 14.39 billion that was allocated to finance the BBI for the financial year 2021/22. The lawmakers are Senator Susan Kihika (Nakuru), Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu MP) and John Kiarie (Dagoretti South MP).

This comes even as the BBI continues to face hurdles in it's way towards being made law. There are currently several cases with pending judgements that are set to determine the fate of the Constitution Ammendment Bill 2020.

On top of that, the delay to subject the BBI to a debate in parliament has also contributed to the sluggish progress of the entire process. However, the recent gesture by President Uhuru Kenyatta together with his handshake partner Raila Odinga was a silver lining among the allegations from allies of the duo over mistrust within the two factions.
