For months now, and notwithstanding the continuing course of the Covid-19 virus pandemic, much of the country’s political landscape has been occupied with the reform proposals that were developed in the aftermath of the reconciliation ‘hand-shake’ between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, and which have been embodied in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Report. Most recently, following the release of BBI Report, debate has increased about various aspects of the proposed constitutional referendum that would lead to the ratification and implementation of its contents.
Given these realities, the TIFA team felt that this was an opportune time to begin to explore these issues so that both the country’s government and people have an accurate picture as to what the situation ‘on the ground’ really is, rather than leave them to either ‘guesswork’ or ‘wishful thinking’, or some combination of both. In December 2020, TIFA Research conducted a national survey whose focus is the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Referendum.
The survey findings cover the following issues;
- Support levels for any Constitutional changes
- Level of awareness of BBI proposals/content
- BBI Referendum voting intentions and reasons voting
- Preferred voting format of BBI Referendum (YES/NO vs. multiple choice)
- Preferred timing of the BBI Referendum
