The Soi member of parliament Caleb Kositany has weighed in on what impact the endorsement of the Building Bridges Initiative in the county assemblies will have on William Ruto's claim that the initiative will be stopped. Speaking on Thursday in a panel interview aired on the Standard Media Group-owned Kenya Television Network, the outspoken legislator held the view that the deputy president's narrative was still valid. He said that the success of the BBI in the county assemblies would not be replicated in the referendum.

Kositany claimed that the MCAs who rallied behind the initiative did so not out of conviction but because they had been intimidated by the state. He said that the referendum set to be conducted this year would validate the position taken by the deputy president.

"The endorsement in the county assemblies does not mean anything. MCAs who voted for the initiative were intimidated, they had a gun on their heads. William was right when he said that reggae will be stopped. When Kenyans vote in the referendum, he will be validated, " the Soi member of parliament told Sophia Wanuna on Thursday during the Crossfire program.

In a public speech weeks ago, the deputy president said that the BBI would not succeed if the proponents of the initiative do not accede to certain demands. He claimed that the Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga had locked out some Kenyans from giving their views. The deputy president has also called for more time to be allocated to the process so that Kenyans can internalize the contents of the document.

The proponents of the initiative scored a huge victory as over 40 counties endorsed it. Only the Baringo and Nandi counties have ratified the initiative. Only 24 counties were required for the Constitution Amendment Bill to move to the next stage.
