Laikipia votes in support of the BBI bill

The Laikipia County Assembly has voted in favor of the Constitution Amendment Bill 2020.

All the 23 members of the County Assembly voted for the Bill with only one member being absent during the exercise.

The unanimous support means Laikipia becomes the first of the counties clustered under Mt Kenya region to pass the Constitution Amendment Bill 2020.

During the vote, the MCAs noted that the report is of much importance to Laikipia, especially seeing as the county is set to get an extra constituency if the amendments go on and get the green light in the event of a referendum.
