Revealed:Final BBI Report Surfaces,Powerful PM in An Expanded Executive Retained


Details of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) final report have emerged indicating that the proposal for the creation of a powerful prime minister’s position, two deputies, and the selection of ministers from the National Assembly has been retained.

BBI report’s main agenda is to ensure every group is included and to end divisive politics that is normally witnessed after every General Election.

The document shows the prime minister will be picked among National Assembly Members from the majority party then the President will be required to send the name to the National Assembly for support by more than half of the members within seven days of being sworn in after a general poll.

Sources privy to information hinted that plans by the BBI Committee to officially hand over the final report to President Uhuru Kenyatta and the ODM party leader Raila Odinga by end month might have been derailed by the recent Chief Justice David Maraga’s call for Parliament dissolution.

One of the secretaries to the committee lawyer Paul Mwangi, confirmed that the final draft is ready but did not discuss the content of the document.

“I am not going to discuss the contents of the report,but I can confirm to you that it is ready for presentation to the President and ODM leader Raila Odinga.We are only waiting for an appointment to do so,” Mwangi reportedly stated.
