President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party Leader Raila Odinga's bid to have the country go into the referendum by July this year, could have suffered another setback after one of the Jubilee MPs came out to pour water on the report.
Speaking on Sunday, Kapenguria MP Samuel Moroto lashed out at the report, saying it contains some contentious issues which are not yet solved.
The Uhuru allied MP said the BBI report has not addressed equality in distribution of the new constituencies and hence should be thrown out by MPs and Kenyans.
Despite his county of West Pokot voting overwhelmingly for the passage of the bill in its county assembly, Moroto in a new turn of events, said the government should first implement the 2010 constitution fully before advocating for another change.
"How will they bring you 35% when they have failed to implement the current 15% to counties? They cannot even purchase corona vaccines and they are hell bent in changing the constitution," stated Moroto.
He also lashed out at President Uhuru saying he should finish his term and go home since he has proved that he cannot handle the current challenges in the country.
While pointing out at the recent Kemsa scandal, Moroto wondered why the suspects have not been arraigned in court despite Uhuru promising to take action and bring all the mentioned persons into book.
"Uhuru and his team promised 21 days of action but that has since remained unresolved to date. We later came to realize that most of those involved are Uhuru allies or even their relatives...he can no longer lecture us on how to tackle corruption in Kenya," added the MP.
