According to Hon Kalonzo Musyoka, the Ekuru Aukot-led punguza mzigo bill did not seek the input from Kenyans before drafting it

The punguza bill has already been sent to the 47 county assemblies for consideration.

Wiper leader termed the Punguza Mizigo as unconstitutional.

Musyoka opposed the Punguza Mizigo bill for lack of public participation and urged all county assemblies to exercise caution and ensure that there is public participation before debate and voting.

The bill proposes the abolition of the 290 constituencies and using the 47 counties as constituencies. To address gender inequality, it proposes the election of one man and one woman from each of the 47 counties into the National Assembly.

Kalonzo, who was speaking during the closing of two-day retreat for the party’s National Executive Council at Kenya School of Law, said the party is firmly behind the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

Uhuru led Jubilee party has not started its official position regarding Punguza Mizigo bill.
