Hours after the Building Bridges Initiative received overwhelming support across the Country paving way for the bill to go to the Parliament Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga has held a crucial meeting.
The former premier today held a closed-door consultative meeting with political leaders drawn from the West Pokot County assembly.
Taking to his social media account, Odinga thanked the members of the assembly for being the first few Counties to approve the document.
“I met members of the West Pokot County Assembly Leadership led by Speaker Catherine Mukenyang this morning.
Details of the agenda of the meeting are not known with the reports pointing towards the way forward for the BBI as it heads to the parliamentary stage.
The bill was yesterday passed by a record 39 county assemblies with West Pokot being among them.
Some of the assemblies who passed it during the eventful Super Tuesday include, Kakamega, Narok, Makueni, Nyamira, Taita Taveta, Kitui, Bungoma, Murang’a, Machakos, and Lamu.
Others also are, Nyeri, Nyandarua, Kirinyaga, and Garissa, with the bIll so far only been rejected by the Baringo County Assembly.
The bill has so far attracted fierce criticism from the DP Ruto allied Tanga Tanga brigade with a number of Counties in DP Ruto’s rift valley backyard and Central Kenya not wanting it.
Raila Odinga’s home County Siaya was the first to give it a go-ahead followed by their neighbors in Kisumu.
