Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has vowed to oppose the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report seeking to amend the Constitution if it does not guarantee benefits for Kenyans.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Kuria claimed that BBI is a ‘project of dishonesty’ arguing that leaders with contrary opinion regarding the report were not invited to the Naivasha retreat where the BBI report is being discussed.
In the statement, Kuria vowed to spearhead anti-BBI campaigns if it does not provide for consultations and inclusion of critical issues affecting Kenyans in their day to day lives.
“If there is anyone who needed proof that BBI is a project of dishonesty and deceit, look no further than the retreat that starts today at the Great Rift Valley Lodge in Naivasha. Simply because we want the report improved to iron out contentious issues, they have only invited MPs who want the report passed the way it is. Pole sana. Our people have instructed us to include their issues including Guaranteed Minimum Returns (GMR) for coffee, tea, milk, sugar and vegetables. If there is no GMR, I hereby declare myself the leader of the NO campaign,” he posted.
Meanwhile, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition Leader Raila Odinga are set to meet the legislators in Naivasha and deliberate on the way forward regarding the BBI Constitutional amendment push.
