Major Boost To BBI As The Maasai Community Vows To Do As This Signature Verification Nears Conclusio

A section of the Maasai Community has pledged to drum up support for the BBI report in the oncoming referendum. Speaking to KBC digital the Maasai leaders led by Prof Meitamei Olol Dapash announced early today that BBI is going to solve the problem they are currently facing as the pastoral Community. This includes the allocation of ward development funds that will empower the MCAs to do grassroots development. They have however urged President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party leader Raila Odinga to include sone of their views in the document before being tabled in the county assemblies. They have already started drumming up support in the counties where the Maasai Community lives.

This comes after IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati had earlier revealed that the first face of Signature Verification is near completion with over 500k signatures verified. The electoral body is at its second and final stage of verifying signatures after which the document would be tabled before all the county assemblies of Kenya to be approved by at least 24 County assemblies as per the constitution. However, this is not going to be easy with the current political temperatures in this country, especially after some BBI proponents switched sides to not support it.
