‘Reggae is back’: Kimunya speaks on Parliament holding special sitting to debate on BBI Bill

National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya has revealed that the National Assembly will hold a special sitting next week to debate the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

In his statement, Kimunya said that the parliament will hold a special sitting to debate the Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill 2020 in order to allow the IEBC to hold a referendum in June.

“I’m expecting that before the end of this week they will have completed a report, and once I have that report, I should convene a special sitting even next week so that we can get rid of it,” Kimunya said.

“We have not lost as much time as I have seen alluded to out there. Yes, it would have been desirous for us to finish it before the end of March, but so long as we complete the process within April, we still have the month of May.” he noted.

The Kipipiri lawmaker added: “I see no problem why IEBC cannot call a referendum in May or June. Typically, campaign periods are 21 days before an election, even a referendum.”

This comes after the High Court had issued temporary orders suspending the activities of the BBI Bill pending hearing of a court case filed by Thirdway Alliance lawyer Elius Mutuma challenging the Bill.

  2. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it. 0mniartist asmr
