The handshake team has received a major boost today after Kisumu County Assembly unanimously endorse the Building Bridges Initiative (Constitutional Amendment) Bill 2020.
This comes a day when the ODM leader is holding a series of meetings with leaders from the Nyanza region n an attempt to convince them to back the bill. The meetings have been fruitful as the leaders who attended the meetings have said they will throw their weight behind BBI.
Kisumu county becomes the second county to pass the bill after Siaya county assembly that passed the bill last week. The bill needs to be passed in at least 24 counties and then taken to both the National Assembly and the Senate to be valid for a referendum.
The ODM leader Hon Raila has expressed confidence that 24 county assemblies will pass the bill before the end of this months to have way for a referendum.
What are your views on the entire amendment bill 2022? Are you in support of it or are you opposing and why?
