Hold BBI referendum with 2022 General Election, 3 other demands after DP Ruto's mega BBI meeting

DP Ruto's Karen caucus demands consensus

Deputy President William Ruto

A political faction led by Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday issued a statement expressing dissatisfaction with the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) constitutional amendment Bill.

Speaking from the DP's official Karen residence, the group proposed further amendments to the document saying that the aim was to create a win-win scenario.

Demands made by the group were as follows:

  1. BBI referendum funds to be rerouted to Covid-19 response for SMEs and school re-opening
  2. Consensus building - the group called for an agreement on the content (what), process (how) and timing (when) of the document. Among the issues to build consensus on were outlined as; outstanding issues on the Judiciary, bloated Legislative arm and affirmative action.
  3. BBI referendum to be held in 2022 together with the General Election
  4. Referendum to be structured in such a way that Kenyans will be able to vote on amendments to specific articles of the Constitution (multiple choice) as opposed to a "Yes" versus "No" referendum.
