In what is likely to be perceived as the final blow to the fledging 2020 Constitutional Amendment Bill, popularly known as the Building Bridges Initiative, BBI, one of the top officials in the One Kenya Alliance has admitted to intense ongoing negotiations with regards to governance currently underway in the Alliance’s meetings. However, more significantly, it has been revealed that the negotiations are premised on the structure provided for in the current Constitution, with the assumption that the model proposed in the BBI is dead and buried.
This was communicated by Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo during an interview on KTN News, lunchtime bulletin, with the station’s presenter, George Maringa.
This is also expected to further dent KANU chairman and Baringo senator Gideon Moi’s plan, as it has been widely perceived that the presence of extra seats, as would have been provided for under the proposed BBI dispensation, would have provided an expansive team within which the Moi Scion would have found room to fit in.
Prior to yesterday’s OKA Naivasha meeting, ANC deputy party leader and Lugari MP Ayub Savula had said that the meeting is on and would discuss how to make the alliance stronger ahead of the 2022 General Election.
Savula dismissed talks of cracks in One Kenya Alliance on the choice of a presidential candidate saying their focus is to have the alliance up and running.
“There is a retreat in Naivasha from Monday through to Tuesday. We basically will discuss how to strengthen our coalition, we want to make it extremely strong and focus on strategies of winning,” Savula said on the phone.
“The issue of presidential candidate will come at a later stage.”
Another insider confirmed that indeed One Kenya Alliance would be meeting in Naivasha following the meeting they had with President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House in Mombasa on Tuesday but however said the meeting of the principals would be preceded by a joint Parliamentary Group meeting of ANC, Kanu, Ford Kenya and Wiper.
