Uhuru and Raila have rejected the BBI document to be produced by the joint parliamentary committee. This is after the committee expressed it's opinion of deleting the issue of constituencies and come up with a completely different mechanism in the BBI Report.
This made the two chiefs and masterminds if the report to be nervous on them. Those MPs allied to the president said this is an interference from the Tangatanga group. They rejected any offer of altering what was in the report given.
They argued that if they delete the disputed article, then the bill will have to go back to county assemblies again. This seems difficult for them to do. Which means the document will remain as it is if the joint Committee backs it up.
The Senate speaker confirmed that he is supposed to receive the report on Monday and table it for scrutiny. This will take place by next week. The referendum is likely to be done by June or July this year.
BBI has been facing a dangerous storm for the last few days. Many had criticized it's process but it is almost to the end now.
If the two houses gives a greenlight to it. Then it will have to be brought to the citizens to decide by either voting yes or no to the ammendment.
