Fresh Turbulence Hits BBI as Speaker Muturi Sharply Disagrees With Mbadi And Kimunya

The stalling BBI train has once again met a hurdle after the speaker of the National assembly Justine Muturi sharply disagreed with the Leader of Majority Amos Kimunya and Leader of minority John Mbadi over holding a special sitting this week to finally dispense with BBI.

Mbadi and Kimunya have been expressing confidence that the speaker on Monday will gazette a special sitting which will take place on Wednesday and Thursday , for Mps to finally tackle the BBI bill and set it on course to a referendum.

"We will have the special sitting on Wednesday and Thursday and clear with the BBI matter,” Mbadi said in confidence.

However, Speaker Muturi has dismissed Mbadi and Kimunya saying there will not be any special sitting this week, claiming his office has not received a request to make that happen.

The back and forth comes at a time suspicion is rife that there could be foreign forces outside Parliament that could be trying to sabotage and kill off BBI. This comes after lawmakers identified that there existed two BBI bill versions, with a huge number of counties said to have debated and approved the replica version.
