Baringo: Jubilee MCAs Who Rejected BBI Bill Break Their Silence After Several Counties Endorsed It

Baringo county Jubilee Members of County Assembly (MCAs) who voted to reject the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum bill have broken their silence after several other counties across the country endorsed the same.

While at funeral of the late Julius Kiplimo Kiplagat in Kabasis, Baringo Central constituency on Tuesday, the MCAs have argued that they do not regret for their actions which led them to thrash the bill which was presented before them after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) verified signatures from Kenyans who supported the same.

According to the County Assembly lawmakers, they rejected the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) bill because the residents instructed them to do the same during public participation exercise.

Led by Ewalel MCA Peter Kebut, who was elected on Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) party associated with Machakos governor Dr Alfred Mutua, the legislators averred that they were simply expressing the opinions of their subjects.

Further, the MCAs cautioned Kenyans for supporting the BBI referendum, alleging that they will one day remember them for rejecting the same when repercussions emanating from its implementation would be felt.

"If this BBI goes through, then the people of Kenya will remember us the day they will start experiencing the bitter reality and seeing the consequences of passing this document," said Kebut.

His Sacho counterpart John Tarus reiterated his sentiments. He claimed that if they were given another chance to vote for the same, they would still reject it again since there was nothing important in it. He alleged that no one convinced them to reject the BBI bill but they made independent decisions.

"No one coerced us to reject this BBI, but it is all about the will of the people of Baringo and I urge them to also vote no when their time comes," said Tarus.

This follows after 39 out of 47 County Assemblies across the country adopted the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum bill.
