Murang’a Senator, Irungu Kang’ata has today faced backlash after the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Referendum Bill was passed unanimously in his own backyard.

Kang’ata has been slammed because he wrote a letter to the president warning him that people from the Mt Kenya region opposed the BBI process.

In the letter,the senator stated that the BBI referendum might fail in Mt Kenya unless President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM boss Raila Odinga change their strategy.

“Let us emphasize on the soft power and art of persuasion. In my humble view, the provincial administration in BBI process should be invisible,” he told Kenyatta.

Murang’a County was the first to give the BBI bill a green light in Mount Kenya in a unanimous vote witnessed by area governor Mwangi Wa Iria.

A section of Kenyans accused Kang’ata of exempting ‘the will of the MCAs’ and only included the will of the people when he wrote the letter warning the president.

The BBI bill has been approved in over 30 counties, surpassing the threshold required (24) to proceed to a national referendum vote. The next stage will see the bill move to Parliament for the final vote ahead of the IEBC proceeding to craft the referendum question.
