Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata has hinted that he will perform another Survey in Mt. Kenya region to determine the popularity of the BBI bill. Irungu Kang’ata is the former senate majority whip who was replaced by Kiambu senator Kimani Wa Matangi. Kang’ata found himself between a rock and a hard place after he wrote a letter to the president regarding BBI. Kang’ata in his letter to the president which passed through the media first claimed that the bill was very unpopular among the central region people. He now claims that he will conduct another survey to determine the current situation in the region. This comes just a few days after all the counties from the region passed the bill unanimously. According to Kang’ata the survey he conducted was only for the specified time and people might have been convinced otherwise.
Irungu Kang’ata Letter
“I know how government works, I knew it will be very easy to mobilize and manipulate MCAs and ensure they pass the bill,” Kangata
“When you look at my letter I said BBI was unpopular as by that time, as to whether it will go up or it will remain unpopular, I think I may have to do another survey and confirm that,”Kang’ata added
