The Two houses parliament and the senate have already started debating Building Bridges Initiative BBI after a special sitting was convened by the speakers.

The Two houses had been adjourned indefinitely following the recent surge in the number of COVID-19 pandemic cases.

Kenyans however seems to be on their own in feeling the hard hitting effects of COVID-19 pandemic following what happened on Wednesday as the legislators met to debate BBI process.

According to vocal Star Journalist Oliver Mathenge, Gikuyu member of parliament Hon Kimani Ichungwa'h tried to bring up the issue of COVID-19 vaccination during the special sitting.

The MP was however made to regret his move after his fellow MPs reportedly shut him down as he tried to bring up the issue.

The lawmakers are said to have said constitutional amendment through BBI was the only thing that should be discussed during the sitting and nothing else.

"Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwah tried to raise the issue of vaccines on the floor and was heckled down by his colleagues who were shouting "it is BBI and only BBI" the journalist revealed.
