The Building Bridges Initiative bill has seen the test of time and has faced hurdles since being passed at the county assembly level. The claims that the BBI bill has been undergoing amendments secretly have stirred reactions among legislators over the certainty of the bill and whether its true nature is still intact since it was revealed to the public.
According to the renowned city lawyer Donald Kipkorir, he termed the amendment of the bill as being illegal citing that, "Articles 255, 256 & 257 of the Constitution allows for amendments to any & all Articles of the Constitution ... Any argument that an Amendment is Unconstitutional is an illiterate argument & reductio ad absurdum. Amendments never are unconstitutional. Let the BBI Bill be passed, "
The lavish legislator and former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo expressed his views on the amendment saying that this move is limiting the Mt Kenya people from having the good packages. He said in one of his Tweets, "They’re trying to stop Mt. Kenya from getting the goodies."
Kenyans did not take it lightly as they fired at Kabogo's sentiment claiming that BBI is not for Mt. Kenya only but should benefit everyone regardless of the tribe.
