While President Uhuru Kenyatta and his troops fully support Building Bridges Initiative, Dr Ruto's team remains defiant that the expected changes cannot go through.

BBI team which was formed by Uhuru and Raila is expected to release final report, with analyst saying that the country will most probably go for a referendum.

“The BBI is an initiative of our party leader Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga,” said Mr Raphael Tuju, adding: “It’s a little bit stretching for us to have an initiative by the government and our party leader yet be pre-occupied in any way with a parallel initiative.”.

But Dr Ruto's allies led by Majority Whip Benjamin Washiali have warned that the report will fail in parliament should the team decide to table the expected changes.

“The problem is its origination, and if it comes to Parliament it will fail on the first day,” Mr Washiali told the Nation Tuesday.

“The question will be: ‘Who tasked them to go and collect public information; was the verdict made; and where was the budget allocated?’”

However, Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa, a key ally of the DP, dismissed the team, terming it an “amorphous body with no legal backing.”

“They were acting on behalf of two people,” claimed Mr Barasa. “They were serving the interests of Mr Kenyatta and Mr Odinga and their report does not represent the views of Kenyans.”

Kuria West MP Mathias Robi also dismissed the BBI, stating that it does not favour the “common mwananchi” as its aim is “to create new governance structures” for a clique of people.

Soy MP Caleb Kositany said the views of the leadership of Uasin-Gishu County were not considered by the BBI team. “We were neither consulted nor invited,” he claimed. “I believe a constitution-making process should be open to all leaders.”
