Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has said that he has no business to oppose Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga.

Mr Odinga is one of the remaining multiparty democracy fighters and has been consistent in his quest for reforms since the 1980s when he was first arrested.

Speaking in Siaya on Sunday, Murkomen said he has no problem with Mr Odinga giving more suggestions on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report for the prosperity of Kenya.

However, the Senate majority leader insisted that all players should be involved whenever such recommendations are made to strike a consensus.

"If Baba (Raila) says that there is something we forgot and should be added, I will not oppose it. We should sit down and look at the items and come with a consensus," he said.

"If it requires a referendum, we shall bring it to the people. I don't want politics of hatred. We don't want name-calling because nobody knows the future. In 2007, Ruto worked with Raila, anything is possible," he added.

Murkomen is one of the greatest defenders of Deputy President William Ruto, who has been at loggerheads with Mr Odinga in recent months.

The two leaders have differed on the methodology of implementation of BBI report. Ruto wants the report to be taken to Parliament while Mr Odinga is rooting for a referendum.

Already, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has ruled out a Parliamentary initiative, arguing that it's unprocedural.
