Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua has dismissed Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana’s withdrew from the anti-BBI group.
Karua said the Linda Katiba (protect the Constitution) movement would continue to agitate for good governance and implementation of the 2010 Constitution instead of passing another document.
Her sentiments came shortly after Kibwana said he had resolved to back the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
According to the county chief, Makueni residents advised him to support the constitutional amendments because they would benefit.
But some have argued that the constitutional lawyer changed his mind after meeting ODM leader Raila Odinga, who started the BBI with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Before making the u-turn, Kibwana had moved to the Supreme Court seeking an advisory opinion on whether it is right for the State to propose constitutional reforms and use public resources popularise the the cause.
The governor, after joining the BBI train, said he would respect any decision of the apex court.
Linda Katiba has come under fire in the past few days after one of its leaders, economist David Ndii, said it’s only Kenyans from the Luo community that were supporting the BBI report because “they don’t use their brains”.
He had also claimed that only Siaya, Kisumu, Home Bay and Migori counties that would pass the BBI Bill because ward representatives from those areas have been enslaved by Raila.
