According to today's Daily Nation, there is a scheme by proponents of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to extend President Uhuru Kenyatta's term past Tuesday of August 2022 which is recommended by the Constitution.
It's reported that they are pushing to have referendum held before the country goes for general elections. With only one year remaining and keeping in mind that Building Bridges Initiative (BBI)￼ has been stopped by High Court, before it is revived it might take some time, meaning general elections will have to be postponed to give room for BBI campaigns and referendum.This suggestion to have referendum held before general election has been strongly opposed by TangaTanga allies led by deputy president William Ruto. They have even vowed to resist according to the report from daily Nation.
It's remembered that TangaTanga had made a suggestion of holding general election and BBI referendum simultaneously saying it will save the country from more expenses. But this suggestion was rejected by handshake allies who are the initiators of the Bill. Share this article with your friends and remember to follow us for more updates.
