President Uhuru: BBI will happen

President Uhuru Kenyatta has hinted at the return of the Constitutional Amendments Bill 2020, popularly reffered to as Building Bridges Initiative(BBI).

While delivering his State of the Nation address at Parliament on Tuesday, Kenyatta claimed the Bill was not a dead cause.

“A constitutional moment does not resolve itself simply by being ignored. The need for political stabilisation is the most urgent task facing Kenya today and for this reason, I want to believe that that which didn’t happen will happen (BBI),” the President added.

Contrary to court’s ruling that the BBI was initiated by the executive, led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga after the 2018 handshake, he maintained the reforms received the blessings of Kenyans.

President’s Achievements

“If indeed the 2010 Constitution states that all sovereign power rests in the people of Kenya and can be exercised either directly or through their representatives, the people made their voices heard with regard to the first amendment,” the first-in-command explained.

Being his second last State of the Nation address, Kenyatta took pride in his achievements during his tenure since 2013.

From electricity connectivity to improved revenue scales, the President said Kenya was now ranked the sixth wealthiest nation in Africa, from twelfth before he rose to the presidency.

In attendance was DP William Ruto, Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, Chief Justice Martha Koome among other senior leaders.
