Laikipia Woman Representative, Cate Waruguru, has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to include Deputy President William Ruto in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) draft so that it can sail through in the Mt Kenya region.
“I know that the main purpose for BBI is to bring unity. I kindly ask the proposers of the report to include the deputy president so that all Kenyans can feel they are part of the conversation,” said Waruguru.
And in Laikipia, the assembly became the first in the Mt. Kenya region to pass the bill with the legislator also voting unanimously in its support.
Eleven counties have passed the BBI Bill, while one has rejected it.
“Those of us who see its dangers should continue educating our people against falling for it. I have faith that Kenyans will see through this divisive and potentially deadly rhetoric and its attacks on fellow Kenyans, and reject it in the end,” stated Odinga.
