Proponents of constitutional review before the next general election led by Raila Amollo Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta, are mulling a parliamentary initiative should the court of appeal fail to resuscitate the BBI Bill.
The BBI proponents have salvaged a way out to start a fresh push in the parliament should things go south. They are planning to have legal experts identify issues that require approval without a referendum so that a new constitution of Kenya amendment Bill is introduced in the Bicameral house.
The BBI secretariat has endeavored to establish a plan for legal showdown with anti-BBI troops. Furthermore, President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM chief Raila Odinga are determined in ensuring the court of appeal overturns the five-bench judge ruling that blocked the BBI process. BBI co- chair, Denis Waweru boldly on Monday brought it publicly out that they are exploring a parliamentary route even if they are determined to pursue high court ruling overturned.
Former Dagoretti South Mp has as well indicated that they are going to ha e a resounding victory and at the court of appeal. The ex- legislator has insisted that if they get the blessings of the promoters to have the bill back to the parliament, they will triumph as they have a requisite number of Mps who will vote for the Bill as it has some clauses that do not require the referendum to be effected and amended.
