Minority leader and siaya senator James Orengo,now says that the building bridges initiative bill will be passed in both houses of the national assembly and the senate by next week. The building bridges initiative bill had previously been presented in both houses for debate and approval.
According to the legislator,he said that both ODM and jubilee are committed to the realisation of uniting Kenyans and bringing more changes through the constitutional reforms,and he expressed his confidence that the legislators in both houses would unanimously pass the bill. The BBI was a result of the famous handshake and Orengo believes the cordial relationship will boost the passing of the bill.
Orengo went further and assured that the referendum might take place between the months of July and August. He therefore urged Kenyans to support the bill when it is presented to them.
He said, "the BBI bill will be passed by the senate and the national assembly next week,then a referendum in July or August. I hope you will all vote in support when the time comes"
Speaking at a funeral,the senator also stated that the bill was still being scrutinized to ensure that what is taken to the referendum is accepted by all Kenyans.
