Uasin Gishu Women Representative Gladys Boss Shollei has poked more holes into the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report following its launch.
Speaking during an interview on NTV on Tuesday, Shollei said that the BBI recommendations do not require the nation to call for a referendum. She said that parliament is the ideal organ to implement the report as opposed to the referendum.
"The recommendations that have been made by the BBI report do not require a referendum," she said.
She also said that the whole process is not only unconstitutional but also illegal. Shollei said that the nation has more pressing issues that need to be addressed with immediate effect as opposed to the referendum.
The lawmaker further said that the country is facing a financial crisis at this time of the year, adding that it cannot afford to hold a referendum at the expense of the suffering taxpayers.
"The BBI process is illegality in as far as it is supposed to amend the constitution, but if it is a report for us to know where we are as a country and the challenges we are facing as a country then it is a good report," she said.
Deputy President William Ruto also believes a referendum is not necessary.
