Kivutha Kibwana Makes U-turn Over BBI Report

On February 2021, Makueni Governor Prof Kivutha Kibwana, who among a section of politicians and constitutional experts opposed to the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill 2020 under the banner of Linda Katiba abandoned his stand and supported the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

“I have listened to the voice of the people in the just concluded BBI public participation forums. The wananchi said the 15 per cent revenue allocation to counties has greatly transformed rural economies. 

It's ironical today Kibwana on his tweeter account has changed his stand to abandon the Building bridges initiative has he quoted the following in his account.

"In my considered opinion, we should postpone constitutional review until after 2022 elections. After that we should revisit the Bomas Draft. It is not judicious to handle reconstitution of IEBC, delimitation of constituencies, referendum and a general election inside 12 months"Makueni Governor.

"Most "yeses" of the 47 county assemblies were qualified. Where public participation took place, the citizens and their representatives recommended changes to the BBI bill. Parliament seems to be grappling with the same issue. Query: What is the value of public participation?"he further added.
