Senator james Orengo called the above six senators to discuss the BBI amendments, senator Kipchumba Murkomen have supported james Orengo over this amendments.
Among the amendments were the opposing to the proposal in the report of having two senators (male and female) represents each of 47 counties.
As Irung'u Kang'ata and Kipchumba Murkomen supports Orengo in this amendments Mutula kilonzo differed with his colleagues, arguing that it was illegal to amend the report from people initiative.
"If it is a matter of change it could have been done before the report was subjected to votes by county assemblies this is like start a new process which is a waste of funds" he said
"What if the funds that is going to be put in this process again were put in development for the benefit of all kenyan citizen it would be better offer" he said
According to Mutula, MPs were not likely to agree on the issue of 70 constituencies since each region has its own interests.
