  2. As on Tuesday, February 23, a total of 28 county assemblies had debated and endorsed the document which paved way for the next stage of the constitutional amendment. This means that the BBI endorsement passed the 24 counties mark, a constitutional threshold required for the document to formally be introduced in the Senate and the National Assembly.
