  • Former Kiambu Governor, William Kabogo, has weighed in on the raging debate on the looming constitutional changes.

    Kabogo took to social media to give his opinion over the Building Bridges Initiative and the Punguza Mizigo Bill.

    In his statement, the business mogul gave one tough condition that should be fulfilled for him to join the bandwagon of constitution change.

    If we must change and or amend the constitution, Whatever it is we must/ shall implement a one man one vote system,” Kabogo noted.

    This comes at a time when most politicians are busy debating on which of the two proposals is best for the country.

    The BBI was formed after the famous handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader, Raila Odinga, while, on the other hand, there is the proposal by Ekuru Aukot’s Thirdway Alliance Party.

    Kabogo added that it was unfair to equate a constituency with 20,000 voters to that with 150,000 voters.

    A constituency that has 20,000 votes can not be the same as the one that has 150,000 votes. e.g. Ijara and Ruiru,” the flamboyant politician added.

    Reports indicated that Uhuru, Raila, ANC leader, Musalia Mudavadi, and Wiper party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, were planning a major merger to push for the BBI proposals

    At the same time, DP William Ruto has been criticised for opposing both the BBI and Punguza Mizigo and asking for politicians to focus on development.
