The Makueni governor Prof. Kivutha Kibwana has come out to declare that the BBI referendum is not necessary at the moment. Kibwana was one of the team which is currently opposed to the Constitution amendment through the BBI before he changed his mind and asked the Makueni MCAs to pass the bill when it was taken to their county assembly.
He has expressed his mixed signals on the bill where most of his supporters across the country have been reft without knowing whether to support or not to support. This comes at the time when there is a big divide between the two houses of legislature where the members of the national assembly are urging the report to be tabled and passed the way it is since it is a popolular initiative.
The senate also seems to have reservations on the report with senators urging to put their say on the report and to act like a rubber stamp to the proposals. This seems to halt the whole process of this report now that there is also a pandemic which needs to be delt with.
