Controversial Gatundu South member of parliament Moses Kuria has threatened to oppose the Building Bridges Initiative(BBI) by joining the NO campaign.

According to Moses Kuria, the recently released BBI Draft does not capture the issues and the problems bedeviling common Kenyans and instead, it seeks to overburden the taxpayers more by increasing the cost of running the government.

Moses Kuria cited various aspects amongst them the proposal to raise the number of parliamentarians, which would only make the lives of Kenyans more difficult. He therefore threatened to join other like minded bodies such as the catholic church in opposing the document. The catholic church through their leaders alleged that the Building Bridges Initiative failed to consider their major proposals.

According to them, the proposal to make the president powerful was not ideal in that it would not solve the winner take it all problem. As a result, they called for further dialogue which was immediately rejected by the BBI proponents, arguing that they had their chance and wasted it.

Moses Kuria vowed to only follow the directions issued by the church. He also urged the government to allow the document go through a democratic process as opposed to the use of authoritarianism.

“The president should call the team spearheading the BBI process and make the necessary amendments that will see Kenyans relieved the huge burden of having more parliamentarians. Should they fail to make changes, I will join the catholic church whose stand you all know.” Stated Kuria.
