The BBI report is already causing jitters countrywide, yet’s it’s not been made available for the public yet. The mood surrounding the report has more so been the same for the past couple of months but the controversy has heightened after the BBI task force announced that they are ready to hand it over to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Some leaders have already aired their suspicions concerning it while others have supported it, regardless of its contents. ODM leader Raila Odinga has faulted the leaders opposed to it, saying they are opposing what they don’t know, “You are opposing what President Kenyatta doesn’t know, and even I don’t know,” he said, during the burial of Michael Gumbao who was shot during the Ganda ward by-election.
Kapenguria Member of Parliament Samuel Moroto who is an ally of Deputy President William Ruto has said he would back its recommendations if it would advocate for reforms that would better the lives of Kenyans.
He said that the proposal to scrap certain seats and constituencies by the Punguza Mzigo initiative was uncalled for as Kenyans are used to certain political seats.
The MP reiterated that the current constitution has made it hard to manage funds hence the need for change.“We need the involvement in the funds allocations and know it is used,” he said.
Speaking at Endough area ,Moroto noted that the report should prioritize the interests of the people as opposed to those of politicians. Moroto said Kenyans would thoroughly evaluate the report and take a position on its content.
