As ramped up efforts to popularise the Building Bridges Initiative document by the pro-handshake legislators and part of president Uhuru's side in the Jubilee party, some legislators and human rights activists are burning the midnight oil to make sure the BBI report does not see the break of dawn.
The BBI report is part of the resolutions reached at by the president and the ODM party leader Raila Odinga when they decided to reach at a truce and work along their handshake agreement, a deal that seemed to sideline Deputy president William Ruto.
A robust and well planned public sensitization of the BBI document has been seen across the country as Politicians and leaders in Government have taken every public opportunity to speak out to the kenyan electorates to chose the BBI report once asked to.
As this goes on, Prominent figures, political heavyweights, human rights activists and part of musicians and celebrities in Kenya have also come out to call for Kenyans to ensure the BBI report fails, terming it as a project aimed to benefit the prominent persons in Government and the opposition.
One of the most vocal public figure calling for the fall of the BBI report has been NARC-Kenya party leader, Martha Karua who has called for the implementation of the current constitution as opposed to the amendments by the BBI report.
Hon. Karua,a senior law practitioner who previously served as a law minister in the coalition Kibaki Government founded the Okoa Katiba campaign that called upon Kenyans to actively vote against the BBI report. Aristocrats and extinguished scholars such as David Ndii joined her in her bid to educate Kenyans through her initiative.

Veteran Human rights Activist Boniface Mwangi has joined the list of popular persons campaigning against the BBI report. In a 6 minute video uploaded on his Instagram account, Boniface took time to point all the cons that the proposed document displayed.
According to Mwangi the BBI initials should mean the Billionaire Brothers Initiative, a jab aimed at the two chief proponents; President Kenyatta and Rt.Hon Raila Odinga. The activist pointed out the double standards by the country's leaders who claimed there was no money to feed its citizen let alone pay doctor's and nurses wages at such a critical time when the country need them to fight the COVID-19 Pandemic yet they could afford a referendum to the tune of billions.

Boniface has previously been recognised for his works in saying the truth when it came to governance and human rights matter. He has also found himself on the receiving end of the law as some of his staged rallys have ended up with the police roughing him up. The activist called on Kenyans from all walks of life to come out and refute the efforts by the political powers of the day to force the BBI report uo our guts.

This new attack on the BBI continues to paint a grim picture of the document as its craftsmen are finding it hard to sale the document to the Kenyan populous this period of economic hardship caused by the pandemic.
