"Kenyans On Their Own?" Lawyer Kamotho Waiganjo Unmasks Proposals Left Out of 'Kioni Bill' on BBI

Ndaragwa MP Jeremiah Kioni has sponsored a bill dubbed The Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill (National Assembly Bill No. 40 of 2020), that seeks to secure some proposals in BBI, after its process was declared illegal by both High Court and Court of Appeal.

The bill proposes to have CSs drawn from the MPs same as at the county level where the governor would nominate MCAs to the county cabinet.

Lawyer Kamotho Waiganjo claims that the bill is being treated as a secret, since it is nowhere to be found by the public who have interest in the events revolving around the constitutional change.

In his publication on the Saturday Standard, Waiganjo argues that if MPs were not selfish, they would not have left out the two third gender rule discussion, amendments of county allocation funds, the harmonization of constituency boundaries and the enhancement of the office of the Opposition leader.

This cements a number of political analysts claims that most of the MPs were drumming up support for the BBI bill, with eyes set on serving as Cabinet Secretaries, and that's why they embarked on pursuing the BBI Plan B before the elections.
