Members of the national assembly voted recently on the Constitution of Kenya amendment bill (2020) also known as the building bridges initiative (BBI) bill. The voting pattern of the lawmakers left the country perplexed as some made a vote that was unexpected.
And now, the Msambweni constituency legislator has come out to finally break his Silence on the matter, spilling the beans in the process on details of a meeting he had with the deputy president William Ruto.
According to Feisal, he met Ruto alongside with two other members of parliament which he named as Kinango MP Benjamin Tayari and Lunga Lunga MP Khatib Mwashetani. He says that during the meeting, Ruto told him to vote for the document if they see that it has benefits for the electorate.
"Kinango MP Benjamin Tayari, Lunga Lunga MP Khatib Mwashetani and I met the DP at his residence on March 5 and he allowed us to vote for the document if we felt it will benefit our people who are also his people,” he revealed.
As Feisal spilled these details, Ruto also came out yesterday to indicate that Kenya is a democracy, perhaps an indication that he is still going to embrace those who voted for and against the bill in equal measure.
