ODM party leader Raila Odinga's tweet on 'reggae music again' has left Kenyans in stitches.

“I woke up to Busy Signal’s – Reggae music again hit. ‘Peace and love for every day.’ What are you listening to?” He posed.

This tweet was attributed to the joy Raila had after over 24 county assemblies needed to pass the BBI Bill to the next stage.

Before the outbreak of coronavirus into the country, Raila used ‘nobody can stop reggae’ phrase, which is associated with the late South African musician Lucky Dube, to promote the BBI agenda.

Reggae is a music genre with deep links to Rastafari, an Afrocentric religion that was developed in the 1930s in Jamaica.

With the passing of the Bill, Raila has exuded confidence that Kenya will go into referendum.

Raila lauded MCAs saying the action of the assemblies pushes the country closer to the referendum, which according to BBI Secretariat should be held in June this year.

In a statement to newsrooms on Tuesday, the AU special envoy on Infrastructure said despite the propaganda and misinformation that had been peddled around the law change process, the Assemblies stood firm.

“County assemblies have been able to push back on a year-long campaign of lies, misinformation and undue influence on a document whose centre piece is ensuring prosperity and equitable sharing of the same,” Raila said.

“I thank the members of those county assemblies and our governors who refused to give in to mistrust, cynicism, brinkmanship and fear mongering and passed the Bill resoundingly.”
