West Pokot has become the first county assembly in Rift Valley to pass the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill.

In what will come as a major boost to the BBI process, Busia County Assembly also passed the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment), Bill 2020.

West Pokot and Busia are now the fourth and fifth county assembly respectively to pass the Bill after Homa Bay, Kisumu and Siaya.

In Busia, the House passed the BBI Amendment Bill on Tuesday morning after a majority of the MCAs supported it with only one member said to be opposing.

ALSO:  Ksh0.5m to family whose daughter drowned in hotel pool on Christmas Day

Busia County Assembly Speaker Bernard Wamalwa said he will make the formal communication to the Speakers of both the National Assembly and the Senate.

On the same breath the West Pokot County Assembly unanimously passed the bill.

West Pokot Governor John Krop Lonyangapuo and Pokot South MP David Pkosing were in attendance in the Tuesday morning sitting.

The BBI amendment bill now needs the support of 19 more County Assemblies before the Bill can be tabled at the National Assembly.
