BBI is Dead! Governor Wycliffe Oparanya dumps it, moves to Ruto’s side

Governor Wycliffe Oparanya dumps BBI

Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has given up on the fight for the Building Bridges Initiative(BBI) arguing that the document is no longer tenable.

Oparanya, who is ODM’s deputy party leader was speaking during an interview where he said it was impossible to conduct a referendum amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and the current economic status of the country.

According to the Governor, all the resources should be channeled to fighting the pandemic that has claimed the lives of very many Kenyans.

“As we move nearer to the elections, it’s not going to be tenable (to conduct a referendum) because you know a referendum is just like a General Election. The expenses involved are heavy…you can’t have a plebiscite, and then in the next 12 months, you hold the elections,” Oparanya stated.

The governor decried the huge debts the country had incurred during the Jubilee administration and noted it would be important to divert the BBI funds to curbing the spread of Covid-19.

“If Covid-19 was not there, I think by now we would have had a referendum. You see us here; we are even unable to go out there because we would contract the virus,” stated Oparanya.
