In a letter signed by both co-chairpersons of the building bridges initiative Junet mohamed and Dennis waweru,the national secretariat of the BBI task force has postponed the collection of signatures that was to start tomorrow after it was earlier communicated by Raila Odinga .
In the letter they cite late publication of the constitution amendment bill 2020 which is scheduled to be printed on Wednesday night.
As this happpened ,our desk is reliably informed that the president and his deputy had a 3 hour closed door meeting in ststus pundits claim might be an attempt to build consensus over a none contested referendum. The deputy president has for long time been seen as stranger and a critic of the BBI process questioning the manner in which it was being handled.
Raila odinga on his side with his brigade have been on the forefront pushing for the constitutional change through a contested referendm claiming the window of consensus building is closed.
