The BBI has already undergone the first stage where it's was unanimously voted for by the county assemblies and the second stage was through the floor of the parliament. With the parliament ready to discuss the BBI and either vote to pass or reject it, speaker Justin Muturi had to set the right date for the MPS to go through the discussion of the document. With the debate likely to be highly contested, this week has been set as the right week for the MPS to decide the fate of the document. Speaker Justin Muturi has said that this week Thursday on fourth of March will be the right date for the discussion of the BBI document.
Muturi is expected to lead the parliament in deciding the fate of the document which is the brain child of both President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga. The passing of the document in the parliament will see it being taken to the people of Kenya before becoming the new laws of the land. The BBI has been tipped to be of the interest of all kenyans and a step to having a peaceful country. However, that will come to pass if indeed the Kenyan parliament will pass it to open the door for Kenyans to decide the fate of the BBI on the ballot during the referendum.
