Kenyans Do Not Require To Vote For The BBI, Millions Have Already Endorsed It, Fresh Details Emerge

Political Analyst Hernan Manyora and a staunch supporter of the Handshake team which is comprised of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga has issued fresh details about the Building Bridges Initiative disclosing why there is no need for the report to undergo second public participation.

Herman Manyora has informed that the BBI is a public document expanding that the only role left to have the report go to the next level is that of the Parliament both the Senate and the National Assembly.

The political analyst has said that the question that Kenyans need to vote Yes or No for the report seems to be a repetition of a process that was already carried out when Kenyans penned millions of signatures to have the bill proceed to the County Level.

“BBI is a public document. Parliament has no role left other than conveying it to the next stage. There can be no public participation again, yet more than 1 million Kenyans endorsed it," Herman Manyora has said.

Herman Manyora is not the first person to allege that the BBI does not require public participation to become a law, Frontier Counties Development Council Chief Executive Officer Mr. Mohamed Guleid among several lawyers, like Kamotho Waiganjo and Peter Wanyama, have voiced divergent views on the need to continue with a referendum.

The three have informed that the BBI might only require a referendum if either the National Assembly or the Senate rejects the Bill explaining that "the expansion of the executive does not require a referendum because Article 255 has not mentioned the changes to the Executive in the protected clauses."
