Nandi County Joins Baringo In Rejecting The BBI Bill.

Nandi County Joins Baringo In Rejecting The BBI Bill.

Nandi county becomes the second from Rift-valley region to reject the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) BBI Bill, 2020.

On Thursday, 23 Members of the County Assembly voted against the Bill while 13 voted YES in favour.

The BBI Bill is already on the road to a referendum after it attained the required threshold for it to proceed to the National Assembly and the Senate.

So far, more than 40 counties have  passed the Bill.

On Wednesday, the Building Bridges Initiative national secretariat asked the remaining counties to join the rest with a YES verdict so that they could all walk together.

“This landslide victory is an indication of the popularity of BBI and is an indicator of the support the BBI Bill will enjoy at the referendum,” The secretariat said.

ODM leader Raila Odinga also said that the BBI Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 will henceforth proceed unimpeded towards approval by Kenyans effectively necessitating desired reforms.

“With the dramatic and strong conclusion of the exercise today, we are extremely close to giving our people the reforms they need to create a united, inclusive, stable and prosperous nation that also deals decisively with the crime of corruption.” The ODM leader noted.
