Former Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki now says that Baringo may turn out to be the only county assembly that voted against the BBI Bill, for what he terms peculiar reasons.
According to the outspoken Tharaka Nithi Senator, it remains obvious that no County Assembly will vote against the BBI Bill after the Ksh. 2 million car grant.
“It was expected that no County Assembly would reject the BBI Bill against the Ksh 2 million car grant inducement,” Kindiki posted on Facebook.
Kindiki’s sentiments are an indication that all the Mt. Kenya County Assemblies are expected to vote in favor of the BBI Bill.
The Meru and Tharaka Nithi Assemblies are yet to conduct a vote for the bill, having conducted several public participation meetings in different parts this week.
Just yesterday, Laikipia became the first Mt Kenya county to pass the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment), Bill 2020.
Nairobi County Assembly also unanimously endorsed the Bill, with a total of 114 MCAs voting in its favor.
This brings to ten, the counties which have passed the Bill.
Other Counties that have given the Bill a clean bill of health include Trans Nzoia, Kisumu, Siaya, Homa Bay, West Pokot, Kajiado, Laikipia, Nairobi, and Busia.
The BBI Bill needs to get the support of at least 24 assemblies to be taken to Parliament.
Should the Meru and Tharaka Nithi County Assemblies pass the BBI Referendum Bill 2020?
