Core And Collateral Interests Of The BBI According To A Constitutional Lawyer

Steve Ogola one if the constitutional lawyer has expressed his view on the core and the collateral interests of the controversial building bridges initiative. The BBI bill which is currently waiting upon its fate from the corridors of justice, has its own interests. Learned council Steve Ogola classified the interests into two where he has said that the core interests of the bill was to take more money to counties, solve the winner takes it all, extra constituencies among other goodies which comes along.

However he has alluded that there are those interests which are collateral in the way they will come about. He has said that in case this initiative comes to pass the chances of the DP Ruto achieving his dream to statehouse will be hard. This might be the reason why the DP Ruto has skeptical about the whole process and the bill.

"BBI's core concern was to share power, add constituencies and send extra cash to counties. Secondly, BBI's collateral agenda was to stop DP Ruto from being President. As it is, both the core and collateral interests have aborted. The sooner BBI supporters accept this, the better." Steve Ogola.

The BBI ruling which was issued by the high court seemed to give the DP Ruto some hope but the appeal in the court of appeal is yet to bring a new twist in all these debates. This comes at the time when the 2022 politics are gaining momentum and top politicians are moving with speed to solidify their grounds.
