Pro-BBI Promoters Change Tune Reveals This Crucial Information Ahead Of 2022 Elections

The Secretary-General of the Central Organisation of Trade Unions (Cotu-K), Francis Atwoli, believes that, despite the failure of the Building Bridges Initiative appeal, the next government will have to amend the constitution, given how Kenyans have always been divided by high-octane political seasons.

The Cotu-K chairman, while accepting the seven appeal judges' decision on the BBI, said that he had been in the forefront of promoting the BBI because he believed the proposed reforms would have remedied Kenya's election-related concerns.

The BBI, according to the trade unionist, was created to address the issues of winner-take-all and inclusion. He said he respects the Court of Appeal's decision on Friday declaring the BBI procedure illegal.


On Saturday, he added, "As a respecter of the law and our courts, I will abide by the court's verdict."


“I believed that BBI would have brought peace and sparked economic growth,” he added.


“The BBI was never about 2022 succession politics; we had yet to conduct the 2017 elections when I asked for the BBI in 2017,” he added.
