Homa Bay Becomes the Third County to Pass the BBI Bill

On Thursday, Homa Bay became the third county in the country to unanimously pass the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), Amendment Bill.

Nyanza region counties are making history as the first ones to pass the Bill as Kisumu and Siaya counties became the first and second respectively to pass the BBI Bill.

The move by Homa Bay County to pass the Bill comes barely a day after the end of public participation exercises which was completed on Wednesday.

The move by Homa Bay County was propelled by Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s consultative meeting which had brought together hundreds of delegates from the region.

“The momentum witnessed here shall, be cascaded to the Sub-County and Ward levels as the country readies itself for a constitutional momentum,” said the ODM leader.

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Amendment Bill 2020 requires approvals by 24 counties out of the 47 in order to proceed to the next stage.

The counties, therefore, have until April 26th to pass or reject the Bill.
