BBI signatures presented to the electoral commission and have sunk to 4.4m from 5.2million as previously obtained.


BBI Secretariat Co-Chairperson Dennis Waweru mentioned internal verification as the logic behind the drop.


“As you are aware, the minimum requirement is 1 million signatures and so we have decided to submit 4.4million signatures. Wale ambao wanafikiri wanafikiri wanaweza pinga hii process tunataka kuwaambia the bus has left. The only thing you can do…unaweza kimbia uchukue taxi ama nduthi ukimbie you catch up with us because we are not going to stop,” he said.


Mr Waweru added that the BBI train is unstoppable.


On Thursday, his co-chair Junet Mohamed delivered the BBI signatures and the bill to the electoral commission chairman Wafula Chebukati at the IEBC headquarters.


“We are waiting for your favourable reply and for ease of processing this verification..sisi ni watu digital…and because we want you to do it within a very short time tumeleta hapa soft copy of all that we have collected,” Waweru said.


Chebukati also informed the BBI Secretariat that the electoral commission will only begin verification once they get the budget for it.


“As a commission, our work starts here, after receiving the signatures. The soft copy will save us the trouble of typing out the hard copies. We shall now proceed and request for a budget from the National Treasury. As soon as we get the budget and exchequer then we shall now get a team…our team is already available…we have a referendum committee which will undertake the exercise of signature verification,” Chebukati said.
