Most Kenyans would reject the Building Bridges Initiative referendum if a referendum was held today.

A survey by polling firm Tifa, shows that 32 percent of Kenyans would vote ‘NO’ shoot down the vote.

The poll shows that only 29 percent of registered voters will vote ‘YES’ in support of the BBI referendum.

In voting ‘YES’, 19 percent said they will approve the referendum because of more money to counties while 15 percent agreed with the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister posts for more inclusivity.

Also, 26 percent of voters said they will not participate in the BBI referendum with 16 percent of Kenyans unsure if they will cast their vote or not.

Kenyans who would vote ‘NO’, 32 percent, said they will vote that way because they lack enough information on the BBI report.

Tifa says 1,550 respondents was polled with a margin of error of +/- 2 percent.
