Murang’a senator Irungu Kang’ata has claimed that his letter was not meant for the members of the county assemblies (MCAs) but voters from the Mount Kenya region.
Kang’ata said that despite the overwhelming support by the MCAs, the last decision on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) bill will be made by the Kenyan people.
According to the Murang’a senator, the resolution by more than 29 members of the county assembly to endorse the BBI bill was influenced by car grants that they were promised by president Uhuru Kenyatta during his meeting at the Sagana State Lodge.
While speaking to TUKO.co.ke, the former Senate chief whip noted that it would be a matter of wait and see if the Kenyan voters would vote No or Yes once the National Assembly adopts the Constitutional Amendment Bill, 2020.
“I can’t tell now whether the people will support or reject it. Let’s wait and see. But MCA vote is not a good barometer noting they had KSh 2 million car grant,” he said.
The Murang’a senator further claimed that circumstances may have changed after he wrote a letter to president Uhuru Kenyatta alleging that the BBI was not popular in the Mount Kenya region and that it would get less than 20% support.

However, the senator shifted goalpost today, claiming that the members of the county assembly may not necessarily represent the views of the voters.
“My letter was on wananchi, not MCA. They have a KSh 2 million car grant in their pocket. Secondly ,it was as at December 2020 when I did my survey,” he posed.
