Elgeyo Marakwet county assembly has this afternoon joined Baringo and Nandi Counties in rejecting the Building Bridges Initiative, so far the three becomes the only counties in the entire county to reject the bill. The bill has been passed by 41 county assemblies.

Lawyer Donald Kipkorir has lamented over this move saying that the MCAs are pushing the region towards being an opposition zone and branding UDA as a Kalenjin party, considering that all other regions overwhelmingly passed the bill, this could minimize Ruto's chances of becoming the president since other regions will see his home turf as barriers to change.

Ruto has on several occasions has opposed the constitutional amendment bill and already declared that it is not a priority to him, but despite this, the Rift valley assemblies would have just joined the rest in endorsing the bill to avoid portraying their Kingpin as an enemy of the people.

The Building bridges initiative proponents have been pushing the Deputy president to lead the NO campaigns if at all he is against the bill, Ruto however, declared that he will neither support nor oppose the bill but will respect the decision made by voters.

By the Rift valley region rejecting the bill, it can be predicted that Rift Valley residents will likely boycott the forthcoming referendum as the rest of the country will be voting, this too will minimize Ruto's chances of winning the presidency in the 2022 general elections.
