The Bahati member of parliament Kimani Ngunjiri has spoken out as more counties moved to ratify the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). Speaking in an exclusive interview that was streamed live on Facebook, the outspoken legislator warned the Members of County Assembly who passed the intiative that they will suffer consequences. He said that the Kenyan people would deal with the MCAs at the ballot.

"Those MCAs who have passed this thing called BBI will meet with the people, they will be punished at the ballot, " the Bahati member of parliament said on Tuesday.

"We know what this is all about. It is about securing the political interests of two people. We know that there is a plan to extend the presidency of Uhuru Kenyatta under the pretext of implementing the BBI. MCAs can ratify the BBI all they want but the Kenyan people will deal with them."

Proponents of the Building Bridges Initiative are confident that they will get the support that they need from the counties to take the initiative to the next stage. Over 20 counties have rallied behind the Constitution Amendment Bill, only 24 are required for the process to move to parliament where it must be supported by two thirds majority. From parliament, the process will sail through to the people who will vote for or against the BBI in a referendum.

Baringo is the only county, as of writing this article, that had votes to reject the BBI. The deputy president Dr William Ruto enjoys massive support in the county. Other Ruto-leaning counties are expected to reject the initiative unless the deputy president rallies them to support the initiative.
