Kenyans were to conduct a referendum to decide whether to pass the 2020 constitutional amendment, commonly known as the Building Bridges Initiative, which was brought by the handshake duo, president Uhuru Kenyatta and former prime minister Raila Odinga.

After the county assemblies approved the bill, it was to considered by the national assembly by Monday of 5th April. This won't happen and it will obviously run out of time as the house has gone in recess in a measure to avoid spread of covid-19. A directive that was issued by the head of state president Uhuru Kenyatta.

The campaigns was to be conducted within 60 days from April 6 after the National Assembly approval of the bill then referendum was to be conducted by the Independent Electoral And Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on or before June 6th.

The bill was then set to be presented for presidential assent between June 7 and 14.

Moreover, Independent Electoral And Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is not functioning normally following the resignation of the four commissioners from their position.

There are allegations from Kenyans that the 2020 constitutional bill, the BBI fate will not be decided through referendum but it would be done by the parliament.
