The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) signatures are “fake from M-Pesa agent booklets,” Kericho County Senator Aaron Cheruiyot now alleges.
Speaking yesterday, the pro-DP William Ruto Senator challenged the government to publish the signatures “if they believe they are genuine.”
“We know who the real people are,” said Cheruiyot at Jesus is Alive Ministries church service in Nairobi.
End of Signature Collection
Last week, the BBI secretariat closed its signature collection exercise. Over 5.2 million signatures were collected countrywide. They were presented to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission for verification.
It was another step in the roll-out of the envisaged amendments to Kenya’s 2010 Constitution.
At the same time, ODM leader Raila Odinga has said opponents of the BBI contents can still amend the Constitution to their liking after the current process is over.
A Second, Third, Fourth Amendment
“You cannot take everything on board in a constitutional amendment. What is not on board today in the BBI will come again. There will be another opportunity for another amendment to be done,” he said during a church service yesterday. “What we are doing now is called the ‘First Amendment to the 2010 Constitution’. There will be a second amendment, a third, a fourth…Nobody is preventing the church from coming up with another amendment if they want to do so.”
