Big Boost For BBI After Latest Developments

Life has been breathed into the Building Bridges Initiative exercise after the speaker of the Senate received the report on the document from the Senate Legal committee.

Senate speaker Ken Lusaka has said he will discuss with his national assembly counterpart Justin Muturi to come up with a date when BBI will finally be debated in both houses and then voted for.

Earlier, national assembly speaker Justin Muturi put out the BBI fire after he flatly rejected any push for the house to hold a special sitting this week to deliberate on the document.

Leader of Majority Amos Kimunya and his counterpart in the minority side John Mbadi has suggested the speaker will convene a special sitting this week, but Muturi dismissed their suggestions ultimately killing the BBI momentum albeit temporarily.

BBI is facing tight timelines, and certain quarters have feared continued delay of the required phases before the referendum are threatening to kill the whole exercise.
