The lawmaker has asked the anti-BBI team to wait for the task force to release its report instead of casting aspersions.

COMPARE REPORT

Mr Kamanda, who said he supports the BBI, added that Kenyans should be given the chance to compare the report from the BBI team and the Punguza Mizigo initiative that being fronted by Dr Ekuru Aukot-led Thirdway Alliance party.

"Let us wait and see the report from Building Bridges Initiative and compare it with the other one (Punguza Mizigo) to see which one will make the lives of Kenyans easier," said Mr Kamanda.

He was speaking on Sunday during a church service at St Anthony Engineer Catholic Church in North Kinangop, Nyandarua County.

He was accompanied by Ntonyiri MP Maoka Maore, Nyandarua County Woman Representative Faith Gitau, Kinangop MP Zachary Kwenya and a host of other leaders.
