Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has delved into the raging BBI report, sounding an alarm to MPs with a serious warning.
Responding to a tweet by Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr, Kabogo was categorical about his key message to the legislators to amend the final report of the proposed Building Bridges Initiative or risk paying a heavy price in the future.
The former County chief urged Mutula Jr and his fellow lawmakers to amend the document for the good of all Kenyans, and not to go down in history by helping a few people in the executive get positions.
“If you guys do not justice to the proposed amendment and put Kenya first, you’ll go down in history as the guys who screwed the country and you’ll pay heavily. Am not a prophet neither am I a witch doctor,” he opined.
The Makueni senator had tweeted about the glaring inconsistencies in the document that needed to be amended awaiting a possible referendum. He urged his colleagues in the upper house to approach the document with a lot of sobriety.
“Truth be told. I have marked several inconsistencies and contentious issues in the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020.The proposed retreat. of Parliament and /or its leadership should navigate these matters with an open mind.”
This comes amid growing pressures from political leaders on president Uhuru Kenyatta to form a committee for collecting the views of Kenyans who missed the launch.
“I urge President Uhuru to form a small structured committee to take reactions from the people who were unable to present their views during the launch of the BBI steering committee report at Bomas of Kenya,” said in a statement.
