Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Thursday, November 28, 2019, shook the internet after he made his voice heard on the possibility of a referendum.

Through his official Facebook page, the legislator expressed his repellence toward any plans to take Kenyans through a constitution changing process.

Kuria, a member of the Jubilee party, stated that spending Sh30 billion on the process will be a burden to Kenyans and should not be encouraged.

He further suggested a number of ways which the money could be used to better the lives of Kenyans.

The MP suggested the money be used to pay off sugar farmers debt, set up a potato processing factory and to write off HELB loans among other ways to spend the money.

This, however, elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans online, some who supported his sentiments while others expressed doubt in his intentions.

Daniel Kiragu - This is just populism. Who said the cost of referendum is 30B? Why are you afraid of public participation and resultant if a referendum?

Justin Otinga - All these things you have listed could have been done long ago if not for the several billions that has been stolen by the same jubilee government!

Hon Mark Bor - What have you been waiting for; you could have done long time ago.... are you aware Kenya has shortages of fools?

Boaz Ogutu - You find a Kenyan with sufficient knowledge still listen to Moses Kuria. who is part and parcel to the problems facing Kenya.

Dennis T Wafula - Who doesn’t know you the MPs have been a big letdown to Kenyans. Rubber stamping this jambazi government of looting money through passing useless bills that add no value to the life of the common mwananchi. What you want is to be bribed to make money. Tunawajua.

The BBI task force was created in 2018 after the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga to research and make recommendations for constitutional reforms.

Since the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, Kenyans have questioned how the recommendations presented will be implemented.
