November 25, 2020
President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived at the KICC in Nairobi county for the National launch of BBI signatures collection exercise as is required by the law for the BBI constitutional amendment bill 2020.
ODM Raila Odinga was also present while the deputy president William Ruto yet again missing in action.
In his address, the president said the BBI was a vehicle for Kenyans to have a national conversation on the recession and for the last two years it provided an opportunity for Kenyans to see what was on their mind and to provide ideas that could be effected to solve Kenya’s most intractable problems.
He was quick to dismiss claims that the BBI bill was seeking to replace the 2020 constitution but a bridge to peace and prosperity that was crucial for Kenyans.
“We need to strengthen the 2010 constitution together. We are only amending it not changing it. The first of many to come over time as Kenyans change and evolve,” added the president.
ODM Leader Raila urged Kenyans to turn out in large numbers to append their signatures on the BBI document while emphasizing it was an avenue to tackle issues of unemployment and economy that were wearing Kenyans out.
“Reggae had just posed and is now back, nobody can stop reggae!” said Raila “Kenya has opened a new chapter that will culminate to a national referendum”.
Independent and Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) through chairman Wafula Chebukati enclosed its approval template for the collection of at least 1 million signatures.
“To enable the voter verification process and to ensure completeness of the supporters’ records, all the fields in the same approved template should be duly files as provided,’’ wrote the IEBC chairman. “It includes the name, ID or passport number, county, constituency, ward, polling station, mobile number, email address and signature or thumb print.”
The BBI secretariat say they will collect between 4 and 5 million signatures surpassing the one million signature threshold required by IEBC for tabling before assemblies.
The BBI secretariat unveiled an online platform www.bbisignatures.org for Kenyans to sign online.
