The building bridges initiative committee recently faced major challenge when a details emerged that different bills were presented to counties.
BBI taskforce was quick to dismiss the claims saying that they were mere typing errors which, will be corrected.
Former prime minister Raila Odinga and president Uhuru Kenyatta are moving with speed to ensure that the bill is passed soon since the 2022 presidential elections are near.
There are contentious issues on BBI that are likely to cause division amongst the members of parliament.
The number of constituencies that should be added in the report is expected to cause big debate among the leaders.
KNBS was categorical that the number of the new constituencies established should have been 68 and not 70 based on data obtained during the 2019 Kenya Population and Housing Census and the IEBC population threshold of 133,000 people .
According to a report by the People Daily newspaper, there are members of parliament mobilizing their colleagues to shoot down the bill.
Opposition to the bill will be a major blow for Raila Odinga and Uhuru's handshake that gave birth to BBI.
