BBI was launched by president Uhuru Kenyata and opposition leader Raila Odinga in 2018. This was at a time when the country was divided into two after the highly contested 2017 general elections. The bill is projected to allocate fore funds to county governments from the current 15% to 35%. Deputy President William Ruto has been on the frontline to oppose the bill. According to him, this is not the right time to do constitution amendments since there are more urgent issues that need to be addressed. The bill was passed unanimously in almost all county assemblies. However, most people believe MCA's were bribed to pass the bill since they were promised 2 million car grants. The bill has brought divisions in the ruling jubilee party with some members supporting president Kenyatta while others supporting D.P William Ruto. This has brought the birth of the UDA party.
