Uhuru and Raila's BBI Ambitions Ahead of 2022 Shut Down as IEBC Issues These Fresh Details

President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party leader, Raila Odinga's BBI ambitions ahead of 2022 receives a major blow following the latest details by the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC). According to the chairman of IEBC, Wafula Chebukati, the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) will not be implemented before 2022 as much of it's details do not align with the constitutional laws

According to Chairman Chebukati, the electoral commission indicates that the delimitation exercise is supposed to be over by 2024. Therefore, this elucidates that next year's general elections will be held before it becomes eligible for the bill to be implemented.

As per the report issued by Citizen TV Kenya, The Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission only reviews the names and boundaries of constituencies at intervals of not less than 8 years and not more than 12 years. However, a review can be completed in at least 12 months before the Members of Parliament are elected.

Generally, it's impossible for the BBI bill that proposes that there should be 70 new constituencies to pass through before the 2022 general elections.
