Details have emerged that the building bridges initiative (BBI) constitutional ammendments bill 2020 has run into a state of confusion after revelations that the country has been reading and interpreting two different bills.
As Citizen TV reported, a total of 35 Counties debated the wrong BBI bill with only 12 counties receiving and considering the correct BBI bill. This has raised legal implications on the fate of the Constitutional amendment drive.
And now, Kericho county senator Aaron Cheruiyot has emerged with further revelations that would likely cause debate after it emerged that the national assembly and the Senate have been debating two different BBI bills.
In a social media message, Cheruiyot says that the whole BBI process is turning out to be a tragicomedy and that the confusion around it runs beyond the counties as earlier reported.
"It is not just counties. Even the joint parliamentary committee discovered today that the bill submitted to senate is slightly different from the one before the national assembly. What a national Tragicomedy this BBI is turning out to be," he said.
