Wiper Democratic Movement Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has congratulated leadership of County assemblies from the Lower Eastern region following the passage of the BBI bill overwhelmingly in Machakos, Makueni and Kitui county respectively.
Kalonzo while applauding the County assemblies urged the both houses of National assembly and the Senate to emulate the county assemblies in giving a nod to the bill so that a referendum can be conducted as soon as possible.
« You did an honourable thing to expidite the passage of the BBI bill. We expect the National Assembly and the Senate to do the same, » said Kalonzo.
Kalonzo said the overwhelming support exemplified on “super Tuesday“ is a clear demonstration that the BBI document has received positive reception from electorate and thus the need to expedite the remainder of the process.
The Wiper leader further urged those few who had dissenting voices about the bill to reconsider their stand and join the rest of the country in promoting a non-contested referendum.
Kalonzo made the remarks at his Karen offices when he hosted the leadership of the three counties including Speaker Douglas Mbilo of Makueni, George Ndotto of Kitui and Florence Mwangangi of Machakos and their respective Majority and Minority Leaders and Majority and Minority whips.
He urged the MCAs to continue the civic education on the document as the country geras towards a referendum.
