Homabay County Assembly passes the BBI amendment bill

Homabay County Assembly has on Thursday passed the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) amendment bill becoming the third county to do.

Siaya was the first county to pass the bill raising questions as to whether the document underwent public participation in the first place.

The assembly Speaker confirmed that due procedure was followed including adverts in local dailies, radio stations and public participation in all six constituencies in the county.

Kisumu was the second county to pass the BBI amendment bill after all Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) agreed to it.

Just like Siaya, Kisumu also confirmed they engaged the public between 5th and 8th February 2021 before tabling it to the house for voting.

The news comes at a time when the court halted the exercise calling on the IEBC to first wait before taking the country to a referendum.

The five judges presiding over the case noted that there are five petitions filed before them questioning the legality of the document.
