The Nairobi City county assembly members have at last declared their stand for the Building Bridges Initiative. Having voted to support the motion, BBI now has 11 counties so far that have declared their support.

Justice and Legal Affairs committee chairperson Joseph Komu had earlier on hinted at the likelihood of the Bill getting a nod from the house.

In attendance during the passing of the motion was the Nairobi Senate Representative Johnson Sakaja, legislators Babu OwinoWaihenya Ndirangu, George AladwaMaina Kamanda, and the Chief Administrative Secretary Rachael Shebesh.

Apart from Nairobi, Kisii and Laikipia on Thursday also voted richly in support of the Bill.
