President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake Principal former Prime Minister Raila Odinga have a huge task ahead of them of convincing Kenyans that the Building Bridges Initiative is good for this country. As the days go by, Kenyans are growing resistant towards the document.

You have to note that the BBI bill is in the 47 county assemblies and the MCAs are required to debate about the bill and pass it or reject it. So far Siaya County Assembly has already approved the bill and the BBI proponents only require 23 more counties to pass the bill for it to be tabled before the Parliament.

Last week President Uhuru was in Sagana where he met Mt. Kenya Regional leaders to plead with them to support the Building Bridge Initiative. The MCAs from that region made it loud and clear that to pass the BBI bill they need car grants. President Uhuru Kenyatta had to intervene and promised them a 2 million car grant each.

This move didn't go well with Kenyans citing that President Uhuru was bribing MCAs with car grants so that they can pass the BBI. Today the President of the Law Society of Kenya Nelson Havi has asked the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to rise to the occasion regarding the attempt by President Uhuru to bribe the MCAs.

Nelson Havi went ahead to claim if the government awards the MCAs car grants, then they will be forced to challenge the move by the government. Things are not easy noting that the Salaries and Remuneration Commission claimed that they are unwilling to give the MCAs car grants because it is against the constitution. The Car grants will cost the Government a whopping 4.5 billion.

"Car grants to Members of County Assemblies for them to vote for the BBI Bill are outright voter bribery and treating. The IEBC should raise the issue without any delay. The Law Society of Kenya will challenge County Assembly approvals obtained through bribery and treating," The President of Law Society of Kenya wrote on his social media platform.
