The Bullfighter has capitalized on the information to state Team Tangatanga preparedness to go for a referendum.

“Arising from the foregoing, it is clear that the BBI has not come up with any recommendations and neither has it authored any preliminary report,” Haji said at a press conference at the Intercontinental Hotel in Nairobi yesterday.

“The BBI is still collecting views from counties and institutional stakeholders, and receiving memos from the public. Therefore, let the country treat as fake news the reports that they heard or read.”

The Team has so far visited 39 counties and its determine to wind up on collecting people’s views by October before the report is presented to President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.

The 12-member team was appointed following the March 9, 2018 handshake between the two leaders after highly polarized polls in August 2017.

They are expected to give a report that reflects Kenyans’ views on ethnic antagonism, lack of national ethos, inclusivity, devolution, divisive elections, security, fight against corruption, shared prosperity and responsibility.
