Lawmakers Moses Kuria, Ndindi Nyoro and Mohamed Ali will appear before the house speaker after they claimed their colleagues received 100,000 Kenyan shillings ($930: £650) each to vote yes for the constitutional amendment bill popularly known as the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

It’s backed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga who say it will help Kenya deal with bitter ethnic divisions that erupted after the 2017-2018 disputed elections.
