The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has summoned members of the Baringo County Assembly over violence witnessed during the debate and voting for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill last week.

Some of those summoned include; Baringo County Assembly speaker, his deputy, 13 MCAs, and 3 sergeants-at-arms.

In a statement released on Thursday, EACC South Rift Regional Office noted that those summoned appear in person at the regional office in Nakuru starting on Monday.

Last week, Baringo Assembly BBI debate degenerated into chaos after a clash between KANU and Jubilee MCAs over the bill.


In a video doing rounds 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.

Amidst the chaos, the MCAs voted to reject the BBI Bill and became the first and only count to reject it so far.

Reports indicate that MCAs voted overwhelmingly to reject the BBI bill with 30 voting No while 11 Yes.

Meanwhile, Deputy President William Ruto is reportedly set to visit Baringo County later today.
