More county assemblies continue to pass the constitutional amendment bill popularly known as the building bridges initiative. Recently Kisii County has become the eighth county to pass the bill where the fate of the bill mainly depends on the actions of MCAs.
There have been allegations of bribery within the county assemblies where people's opinions during the public participation process are not represented.Tharaka Nithi senator Prof Kithure Kindiki has therefore told the members of the county assembly to ensure they represent the views of the people without being biased.
Further, the vocal senator has advised the MCAs to exercise their constitutional mandates with integrity. Despite his stand against the bill he has urged the MCAs to be able to accommodate different opinions whether in favor of the bill or are against the bill for the best interest of the people.
By the end of this week, most of the court assemblies will have concluded the voting of the bill and if it meets the threshold the process will go to the national assembly but if it fails to meet the threshold it will end just like the Punguza Mzigo bill.
