ODM leader Raila Odinga has expressed confidence that the BBI Bill will have been passed by at least 24 county assemblies next week, paving the way for the next stage.
Speaking on Saturday, Odinga said he is certain that the Bill will meet the statutory threshold of 24 county assemblies by Tuesday.
The Bill requires the support of at least 24 counties for it to be presented to the National Assembly and Senate for consideration, and thereafter be subjected to a national referendum if it sails through in the two Houses. So far, 11 county assemblies have passed the Bill while one has shot it down.
The 11 assemblies include Nairobi, Vihiga, Laikipia, Siaya, Kisumu, Homa Bay, Busia, West Pokot, Trans Nzoia, Kajiado, and Kisii. Only Baringo County Assembly has rejected the Bill.
