Deputy Governor Prof Philip Kutima has said BBI report cannot be amended to accommodate more views.

He said there is no room for amendments to reach a consensus as the Deputy President Dr William Ruto is proposing.

"There have been no consensus on Constitutional matters anywhere in the world. If the Deputy President has some proposals then we can make the changes in future," said Prof Kutima.

Speaking at Bukhungu Stadium while receiving signed BBI signature booklets from Western region, he said the Constitution cannot be 100 per cent perfect to satisfy everybody.

He revealed that Kakamega County which collected 322,600 signatures to endorse the BBI report is among top counties in the country with the highest number of signatures.

"We had a target of 151,773 signatures but we have surpassed it by getting 322,600 signatures to support BBI," he said.

Bungoma Deputy Governor Prof Charles Ngome said Bungoma County collected 201,400 signatures against the target of 114,773.

"We must be careful with leaders who are lukewarm on this matter. We need to move and pass this BBI," said Prof Ngome.

He noted that Busia County managed to get 101,332 signatures against a target of 71,738.

Dr Patrick Saisi, Deputy Governor Vihiga County noted that Vihiga County recorded 125,648 signatures to endorse BBI.

Western region delivered 752,000 signatures against their target of 430,674 signatures.
