Building Bridges Initiative report retains powerful president and with a prime minister who can be impeached by Parliament. 

According to reports, the insiders claim that the new report also includes Twelve regional governors. 

The Governors will be reporting to regional governors, then regional Governors reporting to the Prime Minister.

Prime minister will be the head of Government business in both assemblies while retaining the Majority leaders in both houses respectively. The PM will chair Cabinet sub-committees.

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) steering committee validating its task-force report, is scheduled to present its final document to Uhuru and Raila on Tuesday, proposing a mixture of presidential and parliamentary systems.

According to insiders aware of the contents of the crucial report, which they say is ready, save for the contentious issue on the two-thirds gender principle in the Legislature, the report will advocate for a powerful president and deputy as well as a PM with two deputies.

This means Kenyans will continue to elect their president, who remains the Head of State and Government. The report seeks to retain the Deputy President as the principal assistant to the President and will be the running mate.

Just like in the task-force report, the BBI team proposes that the Prime Minister may be dismissed by the President or through a vote of no confidence in the National Assembly.
