After the landmark ruling by the seven Court of Appeal that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was indeed null and void, a member of parliament affiliated to the Jubilee Party has claimed that they will lobby for the refund of the money that was allegedly used to promote the initiative since it was never budgeted for.
Speaking in one of his latest addresses, Keiyo South Member of Parliament Hon. Daniel Rono claimed that close to 10 billion was used to sell the initiative yet the Court found it illegal. He is therefore demanding that Kenyans need an update on how the money will be recovered or else they will go to court.
"We are going to push a motion for either the refund of the money or prosecution of those involved. The funds which were used were never budgeted for, they have to give explanation. If it does not materialize in the current regime, we will do it in the next because approximately Kshs.10 billion was spent," Keiyo South MP, Daniel Rono.
