ODM chief Raila Odinga asks Kenyans to prepare for a referendum in June as county assemblies extend approving the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020.

The former PM says he is optimistic that by Tuesday next week more counties are going to approve the bill and surpass 24 which is the required number before they go for the referendum.

Raila named the day ‘Super Tuesday’ where he and President Uhuru Kenyatta anticipate more counties to approve the Bill.

Currently, 11 out of 12 counties have approved the Bill with only Baringo rejecting it.

“Get ready with your vote because Super Tuesday is coming where we’re going to get 24 counties approving the Bill and help us move to the next level,” Raila said.

He spoke on Saturday during the burial of the former clerk of Homa Bay county council Zachery Origa at Ratanga, Ndhiwa constituency.

Raila wants doubters of the BBI not to make an about-turn now that more counties are approving the Bill.

“We’re telling disbelieving and doubting Thomases who have been fighting BBI to continue doing so. They shouldn’t change their mind until we meet at the ballot,” he added.
