We were Not Coerced To Pass The BBI Bill, Nairobi MCAs Now Say
Nairobi County Assembly MCAs have refuted claims that they were intimidated and coerced to pass the Building Bridges Initiative.
In an interview with Ghetto Radio News Majority Deputy Whip Chege Waithera rubbished claims terming them as mere propaganda to water landmark support that was witnessed in the assembly yesterday.
“Coerced by who and why? Let Nairobians differentiate between 2022 presidential elections and constitutional amendment. The honourable members were well sencitised on the document and we also had a public participation forum in City hall and people gave us the go ahead to pass the document,” Waithera told Ghetto Radio News.
He has also called on the MCAs to move with speed and preach the BBI gospel in wards ahead of the referendum.
“We should move to the ground and continue popularising the document because we know very well that Nairobi will be one of the top gainers if we pass BBI,” She added.
All the MCAs unanimously voted YES to the Bill.
