Politicians allied to Deputy President William Ruto have termed the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) task force a waste of time and public resources against the majority wish.
Led by Uasin Gishu Woman Representative Gladys Shollei and Soi legislator Caled Kositany, the leaders however supported Thirdway Alliance boss Ekuru Aukot's Punguza Mizigo push.
Speaking during church fundraiser in Kasses, the lawmakers said it was unfortunate the country is in referendum mood at a time politicians should focus more on development agenda and wealth creation.
"They told the 2010 Constitution was the best we could get even though we raised some issues. Today they want the same Constitution be changed. They (Raila) recently rubbished Punguza Mizigo. What Ekuru is proposing is what Kenyans want," said Kositany.
On her part, Shollei cautioned ODM chief Raila Odinga to go slow in his push for constitutional adding that Kenyans were no longer ignorant of the law.
"Those people who are undertaking BBI process are taking Kenya for a ride and we are not fools. The Kenyan constitution-making process in 2010 was the most consultative in the entire world.
You cannot go around the country collecting views which can be retrieved from audio tapes recorded in 2010. We will rather Punguza Mizigo because it resonates well with Kenyans," shed added.
