The legislators, joined by some ward representatives, snubbed the meetings in Kericho and Bomet counties on Monday and Tuesday respectively.
MPs representing six constituencies in Kericho failed to honour invites to attend the meeting at Kericho Teachers Training College.
The meeting attended by Governor Paul Chepkwony and his deputy Susan Kikwai went on despite the low turnout.
Meanwhile, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula called upon BBI Chairman Yusuf Haji and his team to put roadblocks to any politician trying to introduce retrogressive politics during the rallies.
The Bungoma Senator was addressing mourners at Matulo Ward in Webuye West Constituency yesterday during the burial of Mzee Vincent Kinisu.
Wetang'ula said that the divisive politics propagated by a section of leaders in the BBI meetings across the country is an affront to disaster and conflict that may tear apart the nation.
"I have told Yusuf Haji and his team not to allow BBI to be turned into a contest of who will be who in 2022 politics but have the interests of wananchi at hand," he said.
He noted that it was saddening and disappointing to see BBI being turned into a contest of who can be the most eloquent orator in the public rallies instead of addressing the noble views that can improve the lives of wananchi.
"Kenyans do not want BBI to be a contest between who will be cheered more and clapped better than who in the rallies after attacking others but want the report that will help the country move forward’ he said.
The Ford Kenya leader urged Haji and his team to ensure that BBI is not used as an instrument of dividing Kenyans but maintain its purpose and goal of uniting Kenyans by building bridges to a united country.
