ODM party leader Raila Odinga has guaranteed his supporters that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) process will resume soon.
This comes roughly two weeks after the High Court dismissed the BBI process on the grounds that it violated the law.
However, speaking in Kondele, Kisumu County on Monday, May 24, the opposition chief told Kenyans that the constitutional review process will go on as earlier planned.
He told the anti-BBI team that he has faith in a panel of judges dealing with the issue adding that the BBI court setback is a process that they will overcome.
“BBI reggae is back,”Raila declared adding that the BBI court setback is something Uhuru Kenyatta and me will overcome.”
Odinga who landed in Kisumu this morning is expected to put his house in order in readiness to receive the head of the state who is expected in the lakeside region in a week’s time.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will in the course of the week visit the Nyanza region where he will preside over the Madaraka Day celebrations on 1 June 2021.
During Uhuru’s five-day visit in Nyanza region, he and his host are further expected to launch projects they initiated three years ago when they put their political differences aside for the benefit of ordinary citizens through the famous March 2018 Handshake.
On May 13, the five judges of the High Court declared the BBI process illegal, null and void.
“A declaration is hereby made that the President does not have authority under the Constitution to initiate changes to the Constitution, and that a constitutional amendment can only be initiated by Parliament through parliamentary initiative under Article 256 of the Constitution or through popular initiative under article 257 of the Constitution,” the judges said.
