In an exclusive interview with Opera news Maingi who doubles up as a political analyst stated that 80% of the recommendations in the report are good.
He observed that the report will bring inclusivity and do away with the 'winner takes all' method which brews violence after elections.
He disclosed that it is true there is a need for changes in the report but trashed claims that the report should fail.
"After elections, there will be alignments by leaders and you may find that the prime minister may come from a small tribe that has never dreamt of producing a president thus ensuring exclusivity," he said.
"I agree there are things that need to be changed but for me, the report is 80%, good. There are things which need to be checked, which is constitution is 100% good, never!" he added.
He reiterated that leadership depends on the leader and not the Constitution stating that former presidents Daniel Moi and Mwai Kibaki ruled using one constitution but their rule was different.
"Look at their leadership they were not the same, Moi was dictatorial while the Kibaki was liberal yet using the same institution. There is more to a constitution with leadership than what people want to achieve through legislation", he said.
Among the things, he said need a change include the proposal to change the architecture of the police force and the one recommending the judiciary ombudsman to be appointed by the president.
He however said that the report doesn't need to be contested but agreed on for the betterment of the country.
