CS Eugene Wamalwa Reacts to The BBI Ruling, Says BBI Will Resume if Raila Wins The Presidency

Defense Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa has expressed his confidence that the Building Bridges Initiative will resume once the Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga wins the August presidential elections.

Speaking shortly after the Supreme Court upheld the ruling by both the Court of Appeal and the High Court that it involvement of President Uhuru Kenyatta in the BBI process made it unconstitutional, Wamalwa called upon Kenyans to elect Raila in August, so that he implements the benefits that were proposed in the BBI.

The acting Devolution CS however stated that the BBI proponents will respect the rule of the law and the decision of the Judiciary.

"Today the Supreme Court has made a ruling on BBI, I want to ask fellow Kenyans to close the BBI Chapter, accept the ruling by the judges and focus on elections, and more so to ensure that Raila Odinga becomes the fifth president.

This is because if he wins, whatever we wanted in the BBI, to protect and safeguard devolution, allocate more resources to counties from 15 per cent to 35 per cent and much more will happen if Raila is the president," said Wamalwa.

The nullification of the BBI has been received with excitement and happiness from leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto, who have severally said that Kenyans do not want it.
