The Senate Minority Leader, James Orengo, while speaking at the burial of Mama Keziah Obama, said that Kenyans should expect a referundum by July or August. The Minority Leader said that the Senate as well as The National Assembly will pass the Building Bridges Initiative, BBI, bill next week.
He expressed his support for the document in its entirety, saying that it is a document meant to unite all of us and help further the national agenda of the country. He said that the breakaway faction that wants more changes to the document can wait.
Orengo went on to say that he is confident and hopeful that the country will pass the bill overwhelmingly when it comes to them for a vote. A few Members of Parliament have openly expressed their desire to mobilize people to vote no for the referundum.
James Orengo and several Members of Parlaiment had to flee a function in Siaya County when rival MPs went at each other. It is unclear what they were fighting about but investigations have been launched.
