Nandi Governor Stephen Sang has vowed to stop collection of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) signatures in his county in the bid to amend the 2010 Constitution.
In a video sighted by TUKO.co.ke, the first term Jubilee county boss could be heard saying Nandi residents were opposed to the document insisting there was no need to collect signatures in the region.
“I want to say that in Nandi county we will not agree and we will not accept collection of those signatures. No one should come here to look for them…No one in this region supports BBI specifically the creation of the prime minister and his two deputies,” he said.
Protect 2010 Constitutional gains
Sang, the youngest governor in Kenya, said even as the robust national conversation on the BBI process goes on, Kenyans must protect the gains made in 2010 Constitution.
“We therefore call for the immediate implementation of those proposals that require legislative, policy and administrative actions even as deeper consensus is built on those that require constitutional changes. We should all strive towards a non contested process,” he said.
Collection of signatures
Speaking on Friday, November 13, Raila announced the collection of one million signatures to be presented to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) saying the process would being anytime this week.
The Orange Democratic Movement party leader said the whole BBI process should be complete by April 2021 while reiterating there would be no further amendments made to the report despite repeated pleas to do so.
“We will be doing the launch of the signature collection. We should be done by April next year,” Raila said.
