Mandera Supkem branch chairman Abdi Majid Khalif has called on the government to cut down the current high wage bill by reducing elective positions in the constitution.
Khalif noted it was high time the Building Bridges Initiative cut down on elective positions instead of increasing them.
The BBI report proposes the introduction of a Prime Minister post with two deputies and some 47 women senators.
He said the report should further put stringent measures of curbing corruption in the public sector.
The cleric further suggested strengthening of devolution by devolving some national government functions.
Speaking to KNA in Mandera over the weekend Khalif also urged the government to consider members of the public views while implementing the report.
On developing the region, he proposed construction of a national livestock market to empower pastoralists.
