High Court Advocate Steve Ogolla Speaks On The Future Of BBI

Since the launch of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner Raila Odinga at the Bomas of Kenya, the Bill elicited mixed reactions on its success.

Recently, the High Court found the 2020 Constitution Amendment Bill that had proposed the creation of 70 extra constituencies and devolve 35 per cent of National revenue to counties as ilegal, unlawful and unconstitutional hence declared it null and void, forcing BBI proponents to move to court of appeal in an attempt to overturn the High Court ruling.

As kenyans are waiting the Court of Appeal to give their rulling on 2nd May,High Court Advocate Steve Ogolla has delivered Bad news to BBI proponents.

Speaking on Citizen TV on Monday morning during the Citizen TV DayBreak show, Steve Ogolla said its impossible to hold a referendum before next year's polls due to legal and practical challenges. In a video shared by Citizen TV on their official Twitter account, Steve Ogolla added that for BBI to go on,the Court of Appeal need to overturn all the findings the High Court found ilegal in the entire process, something he said its impossible.
