Maalim argues that a parliamentary system will heal the country's economic, social and political injustices. 

In a post on his Twitter page on Sunday, Maalim argued that a parliamentary system will end political and tribal ethnicity in the country. 

He further noted that a parliamentary system is not susceptible to rigging as the case is with the presidential system.

"We must at all costs avoid a politician centred BBI process. The absence of presidential elections will remove ethnic acrimony and obsession with rigging," the former National Assembly Speaker tweeted

He went on to say that a parliamentary system will enhance national unity and strengthen political parties.

The former MP also observed that a parliamentary system will allow for equitable allocation and sharing of national resources, especially to the counties.

Maalim has been a proponent of the parliamentary system and was among politicians who attended the BBI forum at the Mama Ngina grounds in Mombasa on Saturday. 

Proponents of the BBI led by opposition leader Raila Odinga are conducting countrywide sensitisation forums ahead of the much-anticipated referendum. 

The BBI forums have so far been held in Kisii, Kakamega and Mombasa. 

The fourth forum will be held next week on Saturday in Kitui County.
