Baringo County Assembly to Take Second Vote on BBI Bill

The Baringo County Assembly is expected to debate the BBI Constitutional Amendment Bill for the second time.

This is after the High Court in Kabarnet set aside their first decision to reject the Bill.

A group of Kanu MCAs moved to court to protest the rejection of the referendum Bill by the assembly.

They argued that that ward representatives did not take opinions of the locals before taking the vote.

Justice Momanyi Bwonwong’a said the petitioners had justified their case.

Bwonwong’a said public participation is mandatory before such a Bill is debated.

This came even as a section of Baringo MCAs said they were were misled to oppose the Bill.

Baringo became the first assembly to reject the Bill and some MCAs were feeling isolated after Bomet and Kericho counties approved it.

However, today, 25th February, the Nandi County Assembly has also rejected the Bill.
