The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party on Tuesday issued a statement on the upcoming debate in Parliament over the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020.

The statement issued by ODM Chairman John Mbadi instructed the party's members of parliament (MPs) to align themselves with the party's stand on the BBI Bill.

Parliament is set to debate the bill on Wednesday and Thursday in a special sitting called by the two speakers.

"It is the party's position that Parliament should pass the BBI Bill as it is, in its entirety. This is, therefore, a rallying call to our members and supporters out there to prepare to vote for the Bill once it is presented to them in the referendum," the statement read in part.

Mbadi went on to send a message to the handshake partners - President Uhuru Kenyatta and the ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

"Mr President and Rt Hon. Raila Odinga get this assurance from us as a party; You have enough troops both behind you and by your sides to help push this agenda through. Do not be afraid. Do not be distracted. Do not be blackmailed," the statement added.
