Wednesday, May 12, 2021 – The Senate, on Tuesday, voted to pass the Constitution Amendment Bill 2020, popularly known as the BBI Bill, to the utter surprise of Deputy President William Ruto, who was banking on his alleged numbers in the Senate to flip the bill.
Out of the votes, 51 senators voted for the bill, 12 voted no while 1 abstained.
The bill will now proceed to the referendum process where Kenyans will get a chance to either vote yes or no if the High Court allows IEBC to proceed.
