BBI gets nod in 29 Counties

Must read

The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Secretariat is in a celebratory mood after the Constitutional Amendment Bill was passed by more than 24 county assemblies.

Described as Super Tuesday, Ward Reps from various counties passed the bill unanimously.

Some of the counties which gave the document a green light include Murang’a, Bungoma, Kitui, Taita Taveta, Narok Nyeri, Mombasa, Machakos and Kakamega.

“We have 29 County Assemblies who have passed the BBI Bill and still counting,” said BBI Secretariat Co-Chair Dennis Waweru.

The bill now moves to Parliament where the final vote will be taken to decide if Kenyans will vote on its proposals in a referendum.

The roadmap to the proposed June referendum is on course since the BBI secretariat had planned to conclude the county approval stage by the end of February.

According to the schedule, the Parliamentary stage will have to be concluded by the end of April.
