Central Organisation of Trade Unions Secretary-General Francis Atwoli is unhappy with some of the recommendations in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.
When he was invited to address the gathering at the Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi, during the unveiling of the BBI report, Atwoli said it needed a review of the proposals on some leadership positions.
The firebrand trade unionist said the President should be allowed to choose the prime minister.
The document says that the prime minister will be nominated by the President from the majority party in Parliament.
Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho said that proposal must be relooked at.
“Atwoli has spoken. We must consider every view,” Joho said.
Kanu Secretary-General Nick Salat, who represented his party leader, Senator Gideon Moi, concurred with the views.
Interestingly, the people who supported BBI, are now taking a back seat, probably disappointed about the failure to endorse the parliamentary system of government, as they had expected.
However, divergent views should be tolerated and appreciated.
