“As Kenyan workers we will support you we will stand with you, we will stand with the handshake team in ensuring that one of the best legitimacy that can leave Kenyans is a new constitution,” he said.

Atwoli spoke on Saturday during the Workers’ Day celebrations held at the State House, Nairobi.

President Uhuru Kenyatta presided over the ceremony.

Atwoli said that during the March meeting, the COTU leadership decided to fully support the BBI to help resolve issues that arise after every election in the country.

Meanwhile, some political leaders have opposed the move by some lawmakers to push for a 2020 constitutional amendment bill.

Amani National Congress deputy party leader Ayub Savula said the nature of the bill as a popular initiative does not allow for amendments urging lawmakers not to undermine the people’s power.

A call by a section of lawmakers in the bicameral parliament to amend a few clauses claiming they are controversial in the BBI bill has received opposition from several political leaders.

ANC deputy leader Ayub Savula and members of the Siaya County legislature say any amendment to the bill is illegal.

Opponents of the amendment say the content of the bill is the voice of the people and that it should be passed as it is and let Citizens decide on the main document.
