“Mr. speaker, I know there are some Jubilee members here who are conniving to shoot down the bill which is sponsored by the government” Muchongoi ward MCA Kipruto Kimosop said.

Several videos showed the assembly MCAs in shouting matches with the debate appearing to have stopped altogether momentarily.

Five MCAs abstained from the exercise.

So far, three counties; Kisumu, Siaya and Homa Bay have passed the bill which needs the support of at least 24 county assemblies before it can be tabled at the National Assembly.

The Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill, 2020 will require the approval of 24 out of 27 Counties for it to move to the next stage.
