He stated that only 24 Senators will attend the session stating that “Tanga Tanga Senators are not invited in the chambers.

Kithure Kindiki who is a staunch DP Ruto supporter will however attend the session.

The session comes in the wake of rising political tensions emanating from the BBI.

The last few days have seen increased political activities with President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga meeting lawmakers in Naivasha to drum up support for the document.

Odinga has been holding meetings with various groups to build consensus that would eventually result in a non-contested referendum.

He however ruled out the possibility of any significant changes on the document even as DP Ruto continues with his anti-BBI rhetoric founded on propaganda that the document is intent on creating positions for politicians, including Raila Odinga.

Tanga Tanga lawmakers were conspicuously missing during the unveiling of the document at the Bomas of Kenya.
