Kisii county assembly has become the eighth countrywide  to pass the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020.

Temporary Speaker, Amos Ondari said during the  deliberations that the members were shocked by myths and falsehoods heaped  on the bill by some busy bodies and resolved to  dismiss  the   misrepresentations.

Ondari pointed out civic education on the bill will be  intensified  at the grass root, as its outcome was awaited from parliament.

Commending the county assembly  members for endorsing the bill, Governor James Ongwae remarked Kisii residents will not listen  to any innuendo or propaganda.

The governor observed the bill was destined to make  county assemblies more independent and accord them  an  opportunity to be appointed county  ministers.

According to Ongwae, the move had vindicated President Uhuru Kenyatta who kick-started the process in Kisii  in  March 2020.
