Thirdway Alliance party Secretary General Fredrick Okango has accused National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale of insincerity with regards to his support for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) push.
Speaking on Citizen TV's News Night on Tuesday, the Garissa Township lawmaker openly declared his support for the BBI.
He based his stand on the fact that President Uhuru Kenyatta is part of the arrangement, after his 2018 truce with ODM boss Raila Odinga, which he said bounds all Jubilee party members to follow suit.
However, Okango now claims that Duale is not in support of the ideologies of the initiative, but is solely backing it for personal gains, claiming that he has been promised a regional position once the BBI referendum push goes through.
He claims that the plot by Duale and others is to include additional positions in government, which goes against the Thirdway Alliance Punguza Mizigo amendment bid which seeks to reduce elective slots for a lighter tax burden.
In a tweet on Tuesday night, Okango said most Kenyans, including Duale's people, are for Punguza Mizigo and not additional positions.
"It's sad that @HonAdenDuale now supports ONGEZA Mizigo referendum just because he has been promised a regional position in that MIZIGO. His people like many Kenyans are with #PunguzaMizigoBill2019," he tweeted.
However, the BBI taskforce which has been crisscrossing the nation taking opinions from Kenyans on the possible remedies to national wrangles is yet to declare a referendum as the best option.
But on the other hand, forces close to Raila have been claiming that the BBI will culminate in a referendum that will seek to among others, expand the executive.
