Nyamira County is currently conducting public participation on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) across the four sub-counties in the county collecting views from the public.
After the conclusion of the exercise on Monday, a day will be communicated when the Bill will be laid at the Assembly for debate.
Assembly leader of Majority and Township Ward MCA Duke Masira said on Friday that the MCAs will be looking towards passing the bill come next week.
“I have trust that our members will follow the other counties in passing the amendment bill which will see our county like any other in Kenya benefit with additional resources for development among other goodies, ” Masira said.
Last week speaker Moffat Teya called on the residents to come out in numbers and give their views as much as the bill is concerned.
“We are looking upon you as the residents to give us your views on this Bill and this will help our MCAs decide to pass the bill or drop it,” Teya said.
Nyamira will be among 11 other counties that will have passed the bill if it goes through.
Public participation across the county started on Wednesday this week and is expected to be concluded early next week to give way for the bill to be debated.
Borabu Mp Ben Momanyi and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i are coordinating the BBI taskforce in the Nyanza region.
“We will as a county benefit from the national government with resources that will benefit even the wards, I call upon our MCA’s to pass the bill so that our residents can benefit,” Momanyi said.
