A pro-handshake Member of Parliament has found himself in crossroads after residents shouted him down for attempting to market the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum.
The lawmaker mentioned the proposal that could seek to add more constituencies as one of the benefits that were set to be realized with the implementation of the report.
According to Tiren, there were several National Assembly aspirants in Moiben who were keen to contest and determined to succeed him in 2022, and the BBI referendum bill would cater for their needs through creation of more constituencies.
"Moiben has got very many aspirants who are contesting and with the BBI, we will be added constituencies," Tiren told the residents.
However, his sentiments seemed to annoy the residents who were listening to him while he spoke more after they increased the intensity of their booing and rumbling in order to let the MP abandon the topic.
Finally, the legislator who is a fierce fighter of the rights of maize farmers gave in to the disaffections of the crowd by accepting to end the discussion on BBI. On the stop, he promised them that he would end the BBI referendum bill discussions as demanded by them.
"Okay now, let us abandon discussions on BBI," he told them.
This comes amidst the intention by Uasin Gishu County Assembly to subject the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum bill that is table before it, to public participation before voting to endorse or reject the same.
