Kenyans have faith that BBI members are responsible people ready to do duty for the country. That's why we are doing everything possible to ensure views of all Kenyans are captured.” He was accompanied at the press briefing by members Adams Oloo, lawyer Paul Mwangi, Prof Saeed Mwanguni and Dr Stephen Karao. The team clarified it is yet to make any conclusions and asked for patience. "Currently, we are only collecting and synthesising the information. It is during the retreat that we will sieve the information and identify what is important from what is not before submitting our report,” said Mr Oloo. He said they will only consider views presented to the team and ignore statements made 'at funerals'.

If you speak in a market, funeral or any other public function and the media covers you, we will not consider your views,” said Oloo. He added: “It is not for BBI to decide whether there is a referendum or not. That decision lies with the people of Kenya."
