Endebess Member of Parliament Robert Pokose is accusing ODM leader Raila Odinga of using the Building Bridges Initiative to push his own political interests.
Speaking at Nai Secondary School in his constituency during issuance of Bursary Cheques, Pukose dismissed Saturday’s BBI consultative forum in Kakamega saying it was a political platform in which politicians are aligning themselves for the next poll.
The Jubilee MP wondered how a political rally in Kakamega could serve as a public participation exercise for Kenyans on the BBI report.
Meanwhile, the National Civil Society Congress is faulting the formula by the political class in educating the public on the BBI report.
The lobby group is calling for a more inclusive sensitization program that comprises of more stakeholders and not just politicians.
The proponents and opponents of the Building Bridges Initiatives BBI have taken sides and commenced their campaigns on the reports proposal.
The first and second meetings held in Kisii and Kakamega on Saturday remain a subject of debate among the political class.
Civil societies through National Civil Society Congress National Chairman Maurice Odhiambo is calling for a more inclusive structure to educate Kenyans on the contents of the report and the proposed changes.
He further faulted the decision to block a planned parallel rally in Mumias in which the organizers planned on creating awareness on the report calling for tolerance on divergent opinion.
