Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula has cautioned politicians against taking sides based on an alleged leaked constitutional amendment report by the Building bridges initiative (BBI).

Senator Wetang’ula said it is unfair for leaders to mislead their followers by pre-empting the contents of a report which is yet to be presented to President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

“We as Ford Kenya tabled our recommendations to the task force and we will make our comments once the report is made public. We can’t be dragged in to the ongoing speculations,” he spoke at a burial in Kiminini constituency.

The Bungoma senator however said the report will be dealt a blow if at all it will lay focus on creating positions to benefit some politicians at the expense of promoting devolution.

Kiminini MP Dr. Chris Wamalwa also called on fellow leaders to hold their horses until they acquaint themselves with the contents of the report so that they can effectively critique it.

“We all want is good for this country. Once we have a look at the report we will react on it based on the articles we are uncomfortable with by giving out our reasons why we feel so,” said Mr. Wamalwa.

Separately, Trans Nzoia woman representative Janet Nangabo said the body language of the BBI team already signals a political scheme to reward certain politicians while silencing others.

“The delayed presentation the report is suspect. The authors of the report must know that they have already failed in their mission since have already read mischief in their conduct,” Mrs. Nangabo spoke in Tongaren.
