Manyatta MP John Muchiri has called for soberness in approaching issue of Building Bridges and Punguza Mzigo initiatives.

Muchiri said though punguza Mzigo Initiative targets on lessening wage bill, it has its own challenges, which may make it not to see the light of the day.

“The Punguza Mzigo Initiative is proposing one Member of Parliament from each county which is not possible and this is a challenge to its success,” Muchiri told KNA.

On the other part, BBI which is an initiation of President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga, the legislator said the members of parliament will wait and see what it is offering before accepting or rejecting it.

“We are waiting to see what the BBI is offering and if we feel is good we will support it and if it will be creating positions for some individuals we will shoot it down,” he added.

However, the MP observed that both initiatives should be approached with soberness so as to understand what they are offering, whether it will be for the good of ordinary citizen.

On contest of Kibra parliamentary seat, Muchiri who was handing over a new bus at St. John Itabua Secondary school in Mbeti North ward of Embu accused Maina Kamanda of supporting Imran Okoth, ODM aspirant saying Jubilee is an independent and distinct party with its own aspirant.

“It saddening to see Maina Kamanda supporting ODM aspirant few hours after President Uhuru promising to give full support to Mc Donald Mariga, Jubilee aspirant,” he observed.

He challenged the parents to support fully the school in ensuring their children receive quality education which will help them in the future.

The MP also advised the students to take their learning seriously despite the learning challenges they may face citing that he also experienced challenges while he was in school.

The legislator was fulfilling his promise to the school after they performed well in last year’s KCSE where, though a day school excelled exemplary in the exam for three consecutive years.
