Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has poked more holes in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) recommendations. Speaking during an interview with Citizen TV on Tuesday, Karua said that she does not support the recommendation of the creation of the post of the Prime Minister as suggested in the BBI report.She said that the post will only add a burden to the taxpayers of this nation. Karua lamented that some of the recommendations of the report have no place in modern society.
"There is no need for a constitutional amendment for a Prime Minister slot, what the BBI has proposed is a super minister who is in Parliament. We already have a similar situation with CS, Fred Matiang’i just that he is not in Parliament," she alluded.
The Former Presidential candidate also opposed the naming of cabinet secretaries from parliament. She argued that the move will affect the separation of power in different dockets. Karua insisted that the cabinet secretaries should work independently from the parliament if they are to discharge their duties effectively at the end of the day."Bringing cabinet ministers from Parliament violates the separation of power. Mixing Govt. & Parliament, takes away the effectiveness of oversight as that is asking Govt. that is already in Parliament to oversight itself," she said.
