BBI Reggae Is Still On As IEBC Announces BBI Referendum Tender

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum tendering process amid the ongoing battle at the Court of Appeal to cancel the process.

The electoral body on Wednesday 14 July advertised in the local dailies informing the dealers to forward their tender applications for ballot papers for the general election and the Referendum supply.

In the advertisement, the electoral body invited traders interested in the tender to forward their applications to the procurement department via the body’s email.

“IEBC invites sealed tenders for the Supply and Delivery of ballot papers; Register of Voters; Statutory Election Result Declaration Forms to be used to the polling station,” reads the IEBC advertisement in part.

“Election and referendum result declaration forms to be used at the constituency, county and national tallying centre on a three-year framework contract,” the advertisement further reads.

This advertisement indicated that IEBC is preparing to hold the BBI Referendum despite the battle in the court of law and the judges presiding over the matter haven’t read the verdict.

Lawyer Christian Andole during the BBI hearing asked the seven-judge bench hearing the case to impel President Uhuru Kenyatta to refund taxpayers’ money used during the process which is in limbo.

Andole claimed that the process is unconstitutional and the High Court should have asked the President to refund the used cash after Justices Teresia Matheka, Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, Jairus Ngaah, and Chacha Mwita ruled that the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 is unconstitutional on 13 May

“This court should order President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta to refund the public monies used in the unconstitutional constitutional process. My Lord this is a novel issue for various reasons because no court in Kenya has made determined 226 (5) of the constitution,” lawyer Andole started.
