Its Defining moment for BBI
Kenyans are likely to go to a referendum earlier than projected in the event President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner Raila Odinga get the backing of the BBI Bill today.
The expectations are that once the threshold of 24 counties is attained, the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020, will be introduced in both the National Assembly and the Senate without delay.
This implies that should an additional 12 county assemblies approve the proposals by the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) today, the push to amend the Constitution would move to the two Houses of Parliament.
So far, 12 counties have endorsed the proposed changes with 22 more assemblies expected to debate it today to either approve or reject it.
