Just a day after Tanga Tanga members, the leaders allied to Deputy President Dr William Ruto bowing down to BBI waves, a section of Kenyans have flocked social media to fault the much hyped initiative.
Using the hashtag #KenyansAreTired, they have criticized the pro-BBI leaders for using public funds in BBI sensitization meetings.
They say the narrative of jobs creation that is being used by politicians during these meetings will never come true.
Some argue that Kenyans are not disunited as being perpetrated by the BBI supporters.
They have dismissed the narrative that BBI will bring Kenyans of different ethnic groups together.
Some decried the high rate of corruption that has been dominating the country.
The angry Kenyans to some extend referred to Kenyan politicians as goons.
Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen, Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) and his Nyali counterpart Mohammed Ali are some of the Tanga Tanga members that joined the Mombasa BBI rally at Mama Ngina water front.
In the rally where former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was the main speaker, a total of 24 governors were in attendance. A number of senators, MPs and other political leaders including Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka also attended.
The three former Nasa principals, Mr Odinga, Musyoka and Senator Moses Wetangula entered the venue in a convoy. The fourth BBI public mobilisation rally for Eastern region will be held in Kitui next Saturday.
Here are some of the reactions.

There is nothing that an ordinary Kenyan will benefit from this #BBINonsense. Kenyans are not tribal, we live peacefully with our Kikuyu neighbours in apartments owned by Somalis. We buy grocery from Kisii shopkeepers. We don't need a PM. We are overrepresented#KenyansAreTired

This is the only thing eating up Kenya. We eat ourselves up then blame the government. We should revisit our shared values and responsibilities as engraved in the constitution#KenyansAretired https://t.co/5Jk9FAWxtj

Time has come for politics of accountability and inclusion. The country’s top leaders need to move away from their ethnic enclaves and promote reconciliation and healing as Kenya heads to the next election.
