Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga stated that there is no room for BBI amendments even as the initiative secretariat announced signature collection for a referendum will be launched on Wednesday.
Odinga announced that the referendum drive was back on track after meeting a section of leaders in the Mt Kenya region.
Meeting the Central MPs’
Raila spoke to journalists following a meeting on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) with twenty-one current and former MPs from Central Kenya.
“We will launch the signature collection at the end of this week,” he assured as he dismissed reports of amendments to the BBI report.
Collection of Signatures
The BBI signature collection process got postponed the previous week.
He further stated that after the launch, the BBI train will snake its way to all the forty-seven counties to collect signatures.
“We now call upon all Kenyans of goodwill, those who want to see an end to corruption, ethnic antagonism, and marginalization to join the BBI train,” Waweru said.
Junet said the Constitution Amendment Bill 2020 that had halted the launch of the signature collection was ready.
“Ours is to oversee this process to the next level…after collection of the signatures,” Junet said.
He said the campaigns to popularize signatures collection will follow, adding that the promoters have agreed on strict adherence to Covid-19 prevention protocols.
“We have agreed to create synergy with various players as we move to the next stage of Kenya Express. We will a wear a mask, keep social distance and sanitize as we go about the activities,” he said at Karen, Nairobi.
