With the contentious debate on the future of the Building Bridges Initiative now going on, another William Ruto's Close ally— Irungu Kang'ata, who also doubles as Muranga County's senator has vowed to support BBI if his demands are met.
Expressing his dismay over the distribution of the number of constituencies from his county in relation to the added number of constituencies in the other constituencies in the proposed BBI referendum, he noted that the number of added constituencies per county were not rhymed with county populations as expected.
He then gave an example of 8 counties, noting from his tone that counties in the Central Kenya region and his home county were most affected.
Giving his demands in one of his social media account, the senator said it will only after it has been explained why constituency addition could not be matched with county population that he will support it.
"I will endorse the report if it's explained why Machakos with 600k voters got 3 Constituencies;Kwale 2 with 280k voters;Kilifi 4 with 500k but Meru with more than 700k got 2;Muranga with almost 600k got 1;Nyeri with 450k got 0; Nyandarua with almost 350k got 0;Nithi 0," wrote the senator in his twitter handle.
