Lamu County Assembly will this week camp in Mombasa to analyse the Building Bridges Initiative- BBI report.

Last week, the Assembly went on a two week recess to read, analyse and deliberate on the report.

Lamu County Assembly Speaker Abdukassim Ahmed said the break is necessary to enable Members of the Assembly to clearly understand the proposals to amend the constitution.

He said after the one week deliberations, the MCA’s will go back to Lamu to initiate dialogue with the public.

“Before the county assembly vote for or against report, all Ward representatives should have a grasp of what BBI entails,” he said.

He said not only for the sake of the MCA’s but also Lamu County residents.

“During the one week training, we will engage constitutional and legal experts so that they take us through various aspects of the document,” he said.

Mr. Ahmed assured Lamu residents that they will also be informed about the document in the planned week long public participation programs in various parts of the county, before the assembly emberks on deliberating about the report.

He however, cautioned Lamu dwellers against paying attention to the politics and hearsay surrounding the BBI debate.

He said all the necessary requirements and steps will be followed before the final deliberations at the floor of the Lamu county assembly.

Ahmed he is on record saying Lamu County assembly will pass the BBI.

He was earlier quoted in a public forum saying Lamu county assembly will rally behind BBI and ensure the initiative sails through.

Lamu county is strong hold of the now disintegrating Jubilee Party.

Siaya is the first County assembly to pass BBI without any further deliberations while Baringo County becoming the first county assembly to crush the report.
