National assembly speaker Justine Muturi has reserved his comments on BBI report, saying that doing so will be prejudicial.

Speaking in Kemera ward, Manga sub county, Nyamira County during a funds drive in aid of Ekerubo catholic church, the speaker cited larger public interest for his restraint.

According to Muturi, the report is yet to be tabled in parliament to necessitate appropriate input from members of the parliament.

Nyamira senator Okong'o Omogeni called for conclusion of the on-going BBI consultative meetings countrywide to pave way for a referendum.

Also speaking at the same event, Borabu MP Ben Momanyi claimed that the locals supported the BBI report with zest because it has an agenda to execute.

He said the launch of the first consultative meeting in Kisii had a lot of significance attached to it adding that leaders who opposed the initiative will have themselves to blame.

But North Mugirango legislator Joash Nyamoko expressed his displeasure with those pressing for creation of regional governments within the BBI recommendations.

Nyamoko claimed that the suggestion was being pushed by some governors serving their last term.

He further alleged that governors wanted to create positions for themselves and vowed to oppose it.
