Six counties have unanimously passed the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) bill on a day the proponents have labelled super Tuesday to hit the threshold for a referendum.
Narok, Makueni, Bungoma, Kakamega, Nakuru and Murang’a are the latest counties to support the bill.
More than 10 counties are expected to subject the bill to a vote on Tuesday and all indications are that the required threshold of 24 counties will be attained paving way for the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020, to be introduced in both the National Assembly and the Senate without delay.
The counties debating the bill are Nyandarua, Nyeri, Nyamira, Meru, Embu, Machakos, Kitui, Kirinyaga and Migori. Others are Kilifi, Garissa, Nakuru, Mombasa, Taita Taveta and Isiolo.

From the ongoing debate in the assemblies, there is no doubt the bill will receive overwhelming support from a majority of the counties leading to a referendum earlier than projected.
