Don’t peg BBI debate on selfish gains-Mudavadi


The ongoing Building Bridges Initiative-BBI debate should focus more on uniting Kenyans and not conducted for selfish interests.

Amani National Congress-ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi said it is evident that Kenyans have no interest in the debate but want the country’s economy improved.

Mudavadi while meeting the Maa Community said the BBI debate has yielded into serious divisive politics that have already divided Kenyans.

According to the ANC Party Leader, Kenyans must handle the BBI issue with sober minds and distance themselves from divisive politics.

He cautioned some politicians to stop pumping into Kenyans what they seem not to benefit masses but few individuals.

“The BBI debate is just but getting started, it will even hotter soon but let’s all remain calm and vigilant since we must change this country for good,” said Mr. Mudavadi.

The 2022 presidential hopeful however said the country does not need constitution amendments for it to foster it’s development agenda.

“It is a shame that instead of Kenyans being joined by the said BBI, they are extremely divided, a sign that Kenyans wants their lives to be improved and nothing else,” he said.

Mudavadi however urged politicians to avoid divisive politics but instead unite Kenyans.

Recently, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission- IEBC said it will need not less than 10 billion shillings for execution of a national referendum on amending the constitution.

IEBC Commissioner Boya Molu rubbished ODM Leader Raila Odinga’s remarks that the referendum will on need 2 billion shillings to be implemented.

“Some of these politicians do not actually know what they are telling us, this whole referendum issue is expensive since it is handled just like elections,” said Mr. Molu.

However Raila insists that referendum to amend the constitution is a must.
