33 MCAs from Machakos county have vowed to shoot down the Building Bridges Initiative bill in the county assembly if promoters of the bill continue to undermine Governor Alfred Mutua.
The threats from the MCAs have been seen as a message to Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka who has been battling it out with Alfred Mutua for the control of Ukambani region. Kalonzo is an ardent supporter of BBI and he promised it will be passed in Ukambani region overwhelmingly.
"33 MACHAKOS MCAs out of 59 threaten to shoot #BBI Bill down if promoters continue to undermine Govenor Mutua politically."
BBI has already been passed by 8 counties with Kisii being the latest to approve it. Another 16 counties need to approve the bill for a referendum to be inevitable because the threshold is 24 counties.
Only one county (Baringo) has rejected the bill with MCAs voting overwhelmingly to shoot it down leaving Senator Gideon Moi, who hails from Baringo embarrassed.
