Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga has been pushing the the bill intending to make amendments to the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and has been mobilizing Kenyans to endorse it.
However, a new twist has emerged after recent allegations by a controversial blogger allied to Deputy President William Ruto concerning the bill.
In his post, Itumbi alleged that the Deep State gave wrong bills to 34 counties intentionally for debates during the debates at the County Assemblies and not 13 as put by Standard Newspaper.
"DEEP State imtentionally gave 34 County Assemblies the WRONG BILL.You know who Deep State is. Ukora tu.It is NOT THIRTEEN as the Standard is trying to say," Itumbi said.
Controversial Itumbi has further claimed that all along, Deep State have not been in support of a BBI referendum and they knew what they did when they intentionally gave wrong bills to the county assemblies.
"You know what you did.All along you did NOT want a referendum.Kucheza Tinga is Not very easy, lakini hiyo game ni yenyu, muendelee na karata tu,"Itumbi added.
The remarks by Itumbi raised a cloud of speculations regarding the BBI even as Kenyans await the outcome of th process from parliament.
Speculations have emerged of whether the Deep State intends to shortchanged Raila on BBI despite his efforts to see to it that it passes.
