Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula is the latest to hit out at the Ekuru Aukot led Punguza Mizigo initiative claiming it does not address the pertinent issues affecting Kenyans.

Wetangula noting that reducing elective positions as advanced by Aukot is not a solution to westage and pilferage of public resources.

Wetangula spoke amid support for the constitutional reform process by Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa.

Wamalwa who was addressing mourners at a funeral service in Saboti Constituency said calls for constitutional amendments is an opportunity for Kenyans to look into flaws in the current constitution.

Wamalwa urging those backing the Punguza Migizo initiative to rethink their stance and await the report by the Building Bridges taskforce.

In the meantime, Nyali Member of Parliament Mohamed Ali has urged his constituents to oppose recommendations to be made by the Building Bridges taskforce especially on the referendum.

The youthful lawmaker claiming the initiative is only a  ploy to enrich a few individuals.
