The BungomaTharaka Nithi and Kakamega county assemblies rejected the Bill on Wednesday.

The Members of County Assemblies (MCAs) have expressed discontent over a number of issues including the proposed reduction in the number of constituencies and the presidential term limit. 

The former presidential candidate has been faulting mainstream political outfits for not supporting the proposals. He has also lamented that the lack of funds by the party has been a major setback in promoting the initiative.

Aukot has, however, continued to ask Kenyans to support the proposals in the Bill, arguing that passing of the Bill will mark a new dawn for the country.

The outspoken politician has been attributing the problems in the country to loopholes in the Constitution. 

Aukot argues that the reduction of the number of constituencies will lower the wage bill and in turn promote development. 

So far, 14 counties have rejected the Bill with Aukot now banking on the support of the remaining county assemblies.

Aukot needs the support of 24 counties for the Bill to sail through to the next stage, which will see it debated on by the National Assembly and Senate.
