How post recieved mixed reactions here are some of their comments.
Dickson Wachira says "Prof., the threshold is very low; 24 counties, 20% of voters in those counties and a simple majority in the referendum is quite easily achievable. Needless to say, you were part of the drafters of the 2010 Constitution,"
Elizabet Oyuchi wrote "Pipe dream when it comes to the county assembly not after being bribed by the 2 million car grant. But Im super certain that it will not sail through when it comes to the Common man. unless Of course if its rigged,"
Carol Karendi says "You are on record saying that county assembly will approve the draft and Wanjiku will disapprove it. Why the double speak. Stick to BBI will not sail through and wait for the outcome. BBI is an idea whose time has come,"
"You can't block an agenda whose time the Gok is proposing and advocating for!!!!!Bbi is areality whose time has come," Kenneth Mwashi says.
Fortune Sitad says "County Assemblies have been guided and cleared in Sagana and Kisumu, so expect maximum approval of BBI by the County Assemblies, OK?"
