Deputy President William Ruto’s led Tangatanga politicians have alleged that President Uhuru Kenyatta is planning to extend his term in office by delaying the 2022 general elections through the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill.
The Tangatanga team is now claiming that the forthcoming 2022 general election might not be held as planned due to the President Uhuru’s alleged plan to use the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill process as a plot to extend bot his term in office and that of the parliament.
This is after reports emerged that Building Bridges Initiative proponents have maintained that the forthcoming 2022 polls must be preceded by a BBI Bill referendum whose time continues to be affected by the unending court cases surrounding the bill.
With the likelihood of the referendum timeline clashing with that of 2022 general election, politicians allied to Deputy President William Ruto have alleged that it is a deliberate plan to have the 2022 elections postponed.
However, the tangatanga lawmakers have vowed to challenge the motive saying they will bank on Kenyans to block any attempts to have the polls postponed.
The BBI proponents on their part have dismissed the claims by the Hustler team asserting that only war could affect the planed 2022 general election.
They also add that the referendum will be inevitable, and if postponing the coming polls will help accommodate the constitution change, then the delay will be unavoidably essential.
