Kajiado county assembly becomes the latest to pass BBI Bill

BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,17TH FEB,2021-Kajiado county has passed the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill 2020, becoming the seventh to do so.

Trans Nzoia, West Pokot, Busia, Siaya, Kisumu and Homa Bay county assemblies have also passed the Bill.

Only Baringo County has so far rejected the Bill during a chaotic session last week.

Twenty-four out of 47 counties are required to pass the Bill.

This now means that the BBI change proponents now need 17 counties for the Bill to make its way to Parliament and then a referendum.
