The Building Bridges Initiative has once again received another backlash ahead of the anticipated Referendum after President Uhuru Kenyatta has today extended the ban on all forms of political gatherings until further notice.
Addressing the nation during the commemoration of the labor day celebration from statehouse Nairobi, the head of state revealed that according to the advice he received from experts, lifting the ban on political meetings will be like digging graves for kenyans. He for example reported that political processes can be postponed and recovered later, but life once lost cannot be recovered.
But this has automatically dealt the BBI process a huge blow, bearing in mind that its promoters have insisted that a referendum must take place in June or July. This will make it hard for them to initiate campaigns days and kenyans might reject the BBI Bill, due to its unpopularity.
Pres. Uhuru: Bars to operate until 7PM. Employers encouraged to allow workers work from home, with exception of critical workers. Hospital visits limited to one visitor per patient per day. Political gathering ban extended. It is never the intent of Govt. to make life unbearable.
