Speaking in Kogello village in Siaya County in funeral function of the relative to the late Mama Sarah Obama today, Orengo said that he hopes that the parliament will finalize their debate and passage of the bill this week, and give way for the report to go to the next stage which is the referundum.

He added that referundum is likely going to be prepared between the mounths of July and August. This will then be the final stage of the constitutional amendment process as they prepare for the upcoming 2021 general elections.

"On the issue of BBI, I'm confident that the two houses parliament will debate and pass it this week so that we give way for it to go to a referundum. We are planning to have a referundum between July and August so that we do away with the constitutional amendment process." He said.
