Raila Set to Revive BBI if Elected as President in 2022

The Right Honourable Former Prime Minister and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga on Monday 22 November, 2021 pledged to implement key proposals of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) if he wins presidency in next year's general elections.

Speaking in West Pokot County during his Azimio la Umoja campaigns, Mr Odinga affirmed that all is not lost for the BBI even after the courts declared the process unconstitutional as the matter is currently before the Supreme Court.

The former prime minister revealed that some of the key proposals he intends to implement if his party forms the next government include allocation of at least 35 per cent of national revenues to counties and enhancement of the Equalisation Fund among others.

He says the youths ha will not be left out as other proposals such as the implementation of a seven-year tax holiday for youth-owned business and provision of cheap loans to small and medium-sized enterprises are intact in his manifesto.
