Kenya will have a referendum before the next general elections. ODM boss Raila Odinga confirms while meeting women leaders.

ODM leader Raila Odinga says its the obvious country will conduct a referendum before the 2022 elections.

Raila Odinga said in a meeting with Women leaders in the country at Capitol hill.

Mr Odinga’s recent statements come after the publication of the Referendum Bill, 2020, in the Kenya gazette last week and whose aim is to provide the legislative agenda for the conduct of the referendum.

Speaking after meeting women leaders at his Capitol Hill office in Nairobi, Mr Odinga revealed that the drafting of the final Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) is at an advanced stage signifying the near return of the political mood.

“The drafting of the final BBI document is at an advanced stage. We want all the issues raised by the women leaders captured in the final report,” said Mr Odinga even as the BBI debate continues to draw division as political leaders differ on the proposals.

The women leaders have been pushing for mechanisms to actualise the two-thirds gender rule in all appointive and elective public bodies as provided for in the Constitution.
