Kalonzo says BBI should not be reduced to political spar

The Wiper National Executive Council has cautioned that the Building Bridges Initiatives (BBI)is a national conversation, and they will not allow it to be reduced into a political par.

The council, which is led by Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, noted that the BBI agenda is meant to give Kenyans the opportunity to reflect on how far the country has come since the promulgation of the Constitution in 2010.

Kalonzo added that the Initiative would give Kenyans a chance to strengthen devolution and consolidate achievements made under the new dispensation and provide a unique opportunity to address concerns and fears of Kenya’s citizens who feel excluded in the government structure.

The council was speaking in Maanzoni, Athi River Machakos County, on Sunday during a retreat to review the party’s progress and repositioning ahead of 2022.

Kalonzo said the party believes in an all-inclusive nation where no one feels excluded.

The former Vice President went ahead to condemn politics of bitterness, which, according to him, is raising political heat across the country, which should not be entertained.

He said that Wiper is appalled by recent political utterances by some politicians, adding that such remarks are likely to plunge the country into anarchy.

Kalonzo said that such leaders couldn’t be trusted with the leadership of the country.

He declared the party’s support for the Initiative, promising that they will transverse the entire nation to popularize the Initiative as well as engage robustly with Kenyans.

However, Kalonzo pointed out that even though the party supports BBI, the country is not ready for regional governments.

He also applauded President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive on anti-corruption agencies to speed up graft-related cases.

The party leader was accompanied by his deputy Farah Maalim, who is also the former National Assembly deputy speaker, and other wiper elected leaders across the country.
