Members of county assemblies from the lower Nyanza region; Kisumu, Homabay and Siaya, become the first counties to pass the Building bridges initiative bill without much questioning,demand, conditions or debate,the bill did not take more than a three hour session, this was after The Orange Democratic Movement party boss Raila convened a consultative meeting with all the leaders from the lower Nyanza region.

Unlike,their colleagues from other counties including the neighbouring counties of western Kenya,Luyha land, Nyanza MCA's did not threaten to shoot down the bill before certain demands are met by the national government. Yesterday, the Western counties of Kakamega, Busia, Vihiga and Bungoma led by their leaders; Musalia Mudavadi, Oparanya, Atwoli, CS Wamalwa and many others, held a consultative meeting to discuss the way forward for the BBI initiative, the leaders urged the MCAs to pass the bill to clear way to referendum, However, to their disappointment, the MCAs had a few demands that must be met by the national government before the bill is passed.

They are demanding Sh500,000 each to pass the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Constitutional (Amendment) Bill 2020. They also want Sh2 million car grant given last week by the President released by Monday next week, failure to which they will not back the document. In short, it's the right time for the MCAs to benefit from the government failure to which the bill will not go through.

Should the trend continue, the government led by President Uhuru, who is so determined to see the bill go through will have to spend alot of money on the MCAs, but what about the Nyanza ones who hurriedly passed the bill,will they be able to get the same?,no I doubt, they are set to lose alot.Homabay Members of county assembly endorsing the BBI bill.Kisumu county assembly in session
