Chama Cha Mashinani party leader Isaac Ruto (pictured) has said South Rift region will deliver 200,000 signatures in support of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) constitutional amendment Bill.
Speaking during the launch of the exercise at a Bomet hotel yesterday, Ruto said the exercise was non-contested and urged residents to turn up in large numbers to endorse the proposed changes.
“We are hopeful that by close of business on Wednesday, we would have collected 100,000 signatures in Bomet and Kericho counties alone,” he said.
The Mashinani Leader was accompanied by Kanu Secretary-General Nick Salat, Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary General Wilson Sossion, Chepalungu MP Gideon Koskei, National Vision party elections director Benard Koros, former Buret MP Paul Sang and Nyangores MCA Andrew Maritim.
