Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok  said county assemblies should engage the public while debating the amendment Bill.

Nanok said Punguza Mizigo proposal by Thirdway Alliance party and that which will be proposed by the BBI should be critically analysed to see which one is of benefit to the country.

He raised his doubts on the preparedness of the country to hold a referendum, saying that the country might not be having enough funds.

He said county governments do not have budget for public participation on the referendum debate, sane to the national government.

 
 

"I do not think we have money for a referendum in the national budget. These are questions that need to be solved so that we do not have any roadblock on any Bill," Nanok said.
