Jubilee Party warns MCAs who vote against the Building Bridges Initiative that they will be ejected or punished.

At least 24 county assemblies are required to pass the BBI Constitutional Amendment Bill for it to proceed to Parliament.

The party has rolled out an Sh2M grant to the MCAs, but it also warned on Thursday to punish nominated ward reps in Baringo County if they go against what Jubilee secretary-general Raphael Tuju called the party position.

Some revelations show that in the meeting that was attended by more than 32 members allied to the party, Mr Tuju directed all the 12 nominated MCAs to vote in support of the BBI or risk losing their slots.

“We want to put it clear to whoever is trying to dictate how we do things in Baringo that this won’t work. Whatever the threats, we are going to stop this much-hyped Reggae. Take our word,” Baringo majority leader Lawi Tallam said.

Outspoken Mochongoi MCA Kipruto Kimosop urged party officials against commanding MCAs what they should do on relevant matters.

“We have rejected the threats and intimidation from Tuju and we can only take instructions from the electorate who voted us in. We have a right to choose what is good for us and Kenyans as well,” said Mr Kimosop.
