The BBI implemention had been temporarily stopped after a petition was presented into the court saying that those who are behind it did not follow correct procedures as they plan to change the constitution through a referendum. After it was halted by the court, its supporters vowed to revive it before the general elections in August but their hopes is slowly dwindling with how the time is running.[Photo Courtesy]
Therefore, some leaders who were supporting the BBI have started coming out while stating what they expect on the Supreme Court rulling on the BBI. For instance, Tongaren Member of Parliament Eseli Simiyu has now come out to claim that what the supreme court will decide about the BBI is neither here nor there for him.[Photo Courtesy]
He claims that whether the BBI will pass or not it is already too late and even if it passes it will not change anything. The election time is around the corner and they have limited time to implement what is inside the BBI in the coming general elections.
Therefore, if it passes it will have not impacts on the coming elections. For that reason, they need to focus on elections and hope that whoever wins will be able to implement some things that were in the BBI.
