Narc Kenya leader boss Martha Karua has described the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report as a poisonous concoction being forced down the throats of Kenyans by a clique of elites.

Karua also likened the initiative that came about after President Uhuru Kenya and ODM leader Raila Odinga’s Handshake to a time bomb, meant to rip off the 2010 Constitution.

“The 2010 Constitution which was a rebirth of the Kenyan nation was fought for by Kenyans who had been oppressed by the one party regime for over 20 years and is yet to be fully implemented,” she said.

She added: “We are wondering why it should now be mutilated in such a hurry to suit the interest of the handshake.”

Karua who served the country as Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister during President Mwai Kibaki’s tenure, claimed the huge sums of money spent on the BBI so far, was enough to cater for the immediate needs of many Kenyans.

Speaking to the media moments after addressing the Kenya Women Teachers Association Kirinyaga County Chapter at the Rose Park hotel in Kutus town, she urged Kenyans to reject the initiative in totality until all views were accommodated.

“We are being hoodwinked by the architects of the BBI that the President, Deputy President, the Prime Minister and his two deputies would have space for women but let it be known that these five powerful positions have no such a provision for women, “she said.
