Members of Parliament Have Crafted a Law Seeking to Provide a Substantive Framework For The Conduct Of Referendum.

This comes as the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) team prepares to hand over its report to President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

The report will recommending specific areas to amend in the Constitution through a referendum.

So far Kenya has had two referendums.

The failed attempt on the Constitution of 2005 and the 2010 process that gave birth to the current Constitution were held under the old Constitution.

The 2010 process was a modification of the old constitution through the National Accord and Reconciliation Act of 2008.

That ushered in the grand coalition government of immediate former President Mwai Kibaki and Mr Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement after a disputed presidential election in 2007.

Earlier, Majority Leader Aden Duale urged the National Assembly to urgently address the lacuna in law following proposals for a review of the Constitution.

The Garissa Town member of Parliament cautioned on Friday that the gap presents uncertainty on when and how to address critical issues in the Constitution.
