Maendeleo Chap Chap MCAs threaten to shoot down BBI bill if Governor Mutua is not respected

A Section of Machakos county Assembly members allied to Maendeleo Chap Chap party leader Dr Alfred Mutua has threatened shoot down the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill if Governor Mutua is not respected. Speaking to the media this afternoon at Governor's office the Assembly members said the proponents of BBI have continued to undermine the MCC party leader his influence in the process notwithstanding.

The 33 MCAs out of 59 said a meeting called in Stoni Athi by the BBI promoters was convened behind the knowledge of Dr Mutua. "We don't want to be used to rubber-stamp a process where our leader is not consulted,"

The members said. Machakos Assembly Minority leader Alex Kamitu said they will decline to pass the Bill if Governor Mutua is not recognized and respected.

"They are spending close to Ksh 45 million to bribe members of Assembly and we decline to be a party to it," said Mr Kamitu.
