The famous handshake between the president Uhuru Kenyatta and former prime Minister Raila Odinga is claimed to have given birth to the idea of the Building bridges initiative.
The campaigns for the ammendments have been spearheaded by Raila and Uhuru although the deputy president William Ruto and his troops alias TangaTanga have been the vehement opposers of it.
The BBI will need the approval of atleast 24 counties before it is returned to the National Assembly with Siaya county becoming the first county to approve the document.
However in what will be bad news to Raila and Uhuru, only 21 percent of Kenyans support the BBI report while 43 percent are against it according to an opinion poll by Radio Africa Group.
According to the poll, which was conducted across all the 47 counties, 25 percent of Kenyans do not know much about the BBI while 11 percent do not care about it.
The opinion Poll, which was conducted at the same time president Uhuru Kenyatta had pitched his tent in Sagana to woo for support from grassroot leaders will be music to the ears of Ruto and his troops.
