Opinion: This is why BBI raggae has been stopped as the country can't hold referendum due to this

According to the Building Bridges Initiative's calendar of events, Kenya was supposed to hold a BBI referendum on 6th of June 2021 and the bill be assent into law by the president on 14th June 2021.

Now that IEBC has announced that the next general elections will be held on 9th of August 2022, and the ruling on BBI appeal will be on 20th August 2021, its evident that the country cannot hold a referendum before 2022 and thus the Building Bridges Initiative may not go through as planned.

For Building Bridges Initiative to go through, the proponents have to pray for magic to happen. For the court of appeal to overtun the high court's ruling that is not all, they also have to pray that if the court of appeal rules on BBI favour, the anti-BBI team should not contest the ruling in the supreme court. This two miracles may never happen.

If that is enough and if the Court of appeal rules in favour of pro-BBI and anti-BBI team fails to contest in the supreme court, the pro-BBI team will have to use chests to postpone the general election in order to hold a referendum. This is absolutely impossible, does it mean raggae has been stopped.

On Saturday the ODM leader Raila Odinga was really convinced that raggae is in half time and will not be stopped. We Kenyans are highly anxious to see what will happen as soon as the Court of Appeal comes our with their conclusion.
