The Nandi County Assembly has become the second after Baringo to throw out the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020.
Almost all the ward representatives who were present during the session voted ‘No’.
Baringo County was the first assembly to reject the BBI Bill.
However, the two counties’ rejection of the Bill has little or no significance because it has already been passed by more than the 24 counties required by the Constitution.
As of yesterday, 24th February, 41 out of 47 assemblies had said ‘Yes’ to the Bill.
From the start, it had been projected that a good number of counties from the Rift Valley would be on the ‘No’ side due to their loyalty to Deputy President William Ruto.
Even so, some pro-Ruto counties, including Bomet, Kericho and Turkana, have endorsed the BBI Bill.
The spotlight is now on Elgeyo-Marakwet and DP Ruto’s home county, Uasin Gishu, to see their decisions.
