During a tour of the Nyanza region ahead of the Madaraka Day celebrations, Uhuru assured residents that the BBI Reggae will be back.
He said that he is counting on powerful lawyers like James Orengo to salvage the Constitution amendment bill.
“BBI is not helping Raila and his family. BBI is not helping Uhuru. It is for bringing justice for every Kenyan. And that is what I am pleading with you, please come out and support it. What is before us we will sort out, I am sure. If we have lawyers like Orengo, can we be defeated really?” he asked the Nyanza residents.
His handshake patner Raila Odinga also gave a similar assurance to Kenyans.
He cautioned his followers against hurling insults at the Judiciary, calling on them to respect the court decision and follow legal procedures.
