Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has lauded County Assemblies from the lower eastern region for passing the Constitutional Amendment Bill overwhelmingly.
Kalonzo said the overwhelming support exemplified on “super Tuesday” was a clear demonstration that the BBI had received positive reception from wananchi and thus the need to expedite the remainder of the process.
The former vice president made the remarks at his Karen offices when he hosted the leadership of the three counties including Speaker Douglas Mbilo of Makueni, George Ndotto of Kitui and Florence Mwangangi of Machakos and their respective Majority and Minority Leaders and Majority and Minority whips.
He urged both level of houses to emulate the County assemblies in giving a nod to the bill so that it can be subjected to a referendum and those few who had dissenting voices about the bill to reconsider their stand and join the rest of the country in promoting for a non contested referendum.
Kalonzo also asked the MCAs to continue with the civic education on the BBI as the country gears towards a referendum.
