2nd County to reject BBI Bill comes from North Rift

The second "NO"

Nandi County Assembly during a past session

Nandi County has become the second county to reject the Constitution (Amendment) Bill 2020, popularly known as the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum Bill.

This after Baringo County Assembly made history on February 11, 2021 when the MCAs rejected the bill in a chaotic session.

Reports indicate that 23 MCAs voted against the bill while 13 voted in favour.

The county is governed by one of Deputy President William Ruto's close allies, Governor Stephen Sang.

The DP and a caucus comprised of MPs and Governors have been against the BBI Bill stating that it is not a priority.

They proposed to have Kenyans vote in a referendum during the upcoming General Election stating that citizens are yet to recover from the effect of Covid-19 to the economy.

So far, more than 40 County Assemblies have approved the Bill, surpassing the required 24 constitutional limit.
