Nakuru Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has hit the campaign trail hoping to woo Nakuru Members of County Assembly, one day after Ward Reps from his home county rejected the BBI Bill.
In a tweet on Friday, Senator Moi noted that he had a meeting with Nakuru County Assembly leadership, but did not reveal the details of the meeting.
Reports indicate that Senator Moi implored upon the leaders to marshal their colleagues to pass the BBI Bill.
“Meeting Nakuru County MCAs led by the Deputy Speaker Hon. Samwel Tonu, Minority Leader Hon. Peter Parang'a, Minority Whip Hon. Alice Kering and County Assembly Women Caucus Chairperson Hon. Susan Njuguna in Njoro, Nakuru County,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, Baringo County Assembly on Thursday became the first county to reject the BBI Constitutional (Amendment) Bill 2020.
Reports indicate that MCAs voted overwhelmingly to reject the BBI bill with 30 voting No while 11 Yes.
The Thursday assembly debate degenerated into chaos after a clash between KANU and Jubilee MCAs over the bill.
In a video that has since gone viral on social media, two MCAs are seen in a fistfight before their colleagues intervened and separated them.
Reports also indicate that teargas was lobbed into the assembly, forcing the legislators to scamper for safety.
On the other hand, three counties in ODM leader Raila Odinga's backyard have already passed the BBI bill. They include; Homa Bay, Siaya, and Kisumu.
The bill needs the support of at least 24 county assemblies before it can be tabled at the National Assembly.
