Governor Kibwana Changes Tune on the BBI Few Months After Endorsing it, Declares New Stand

Makueni county governor Kivutha Kibwana has left many kenyans guessing his moves every now and then especially on the building bridges initiative (BBI).

At first, Kibwana was a fierce critic of the building bridges initiative (BBI) constitutional ammendment bill 2020 and said that it was not a priority. Later, he changed tune and backed the BBI bill, citing influence from the Makueni county people. And now, he has a new stand, again!

Taking to social media, the Makueni county boss has explained that he is making a departure from his initial position and announced that the BBI Constitutional ammendments should come after the 2022 elections. Here is the catch:

Instead of backing the process fully, Kibwana says that after the 2022 polls, the country should revisit the Bomas of Kenya constitutional deliberations and not even the BBI bill. He cites the possible interference with IEBC and the Constituency boundaries as key reasons for his recent decision.

"In my considered opinion, we should postpone constitutional review until after 2022 elections. After that we should revisit the Bomas Draft. It is not judicious to handle reconstitution of IEBC, delimitation of constituencies, referendum and a general election inside 12 months," he said in part.
