In a statement, the National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi states, “It is the party’s position that the National Assembly adopt the BBI Bill as it stands, in general.”

He called on party MPs and party supporters to prepare to vote on the Bill as soon as it is presented to them in a referendum.

Parliament will begin a two-day special session from Wednesday to discuss a number of key national issues, including the Kenya Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 or the BBI Bill as it is known.

“As a party, we may not have got everything we wanted. In fact, no party has got everything we wanted. But there is a very important achievement in the BBI that we do not want to give up just because we did not get everything,” he said.
Mbadi says ODM has always been advocating for the strengthening of Devolution units and the increase in funding for such units. The BBI bill adds funds to the county and sends money to the county. That is an advantage that we cannot afford.

He said the BBI Bill contains practical and comprehensive proposals on how to end corruption as a way of life in Kenya.

“ODM has always stood by the equitable sharing of national property. Equality has been our calling to gather as a party since our inception. The BBI has strong recommendations on how to ensure collective prosperity in the country. We do not want to dismiss these proposals, ”he said.

Mbadi said, “ODM supporters bear the brunt of the election violence in this country. We know what happened in 2007, 2013 and 2017. The BBI has strong recommendations on how to end the culture of electoral violence and the winner takes all our politics. We do not want to lose those suggestions. ”

He said the Bill contains concrete recommendations on how to help our youth and turn them into innovators and entrepreneurs, how to make them creative and not job seekers, and how to make them independent.

Mbadi said the ODM party would support the Bill to the end, saying “We stand firm, shoulder to shoulder, with Uhuru President Uhuru Kenyatta and his brother Rt Hon Raila Odinga in their quest to reform Kenya through genuine cooperation and cooperation.”
