14-member committee to steer BBI gazetted by President Uhuru

  • Paul Mwangi and Martin Kimani are the joint secretaries to oversee the process
  • The fourteen members in the taskforce are Rose Moseu, James Matundura, Maison Leshomo James, bishop Lawi Imathiu, and Garissa senator Mohamed Yusuf Haji.

The government has today named a 14-member committee set to oversee implementation of the Building Bridges Initiative. This report will help unite Kenyans regardless of their tribe.

Members in the task force include Rose Moseu, James Matundura, Maison Leshomo James, bishop Lawi Imathiu, and Garissa senator Mohamed Yusuf Haji.

Others are John Seii, Morompi ole Ronkei, Florence Omuse, Busia senator Amos Wako, Adams Oloo, Archbishop Emeritus Zacchaeus Okoth, Bishop Peter Njenga, Saeed Mwaguni, and Agnes Kavindu Muthama.

The task force has been asked to submit comprehensive guidance to the government latest 30th June 2020. Joint secretaries in the committee are Paul Mwangi and Martin Kimani.

The steering committee is to appoint a chairperson and a vice-chairperson from its appointed members. Additionally, it’s to regulate procedures according to the constitution and the rule of law. This also includes non-partisan and privilege bipartisan groupings, experts and forums.

To achieve its reference term successfully, the committee must create technical working groups. All meetings will be held in the stipulated areas. This is to ease in the proper discharge of functions.

The public hasn’t been left out as they will give their recommendations to the steering committee. Information from members of the public will include research, study, and written memoranda.

All official communication from the committee is entirely the responsibility of the two secretaries. In case of required assistance, the joint secretaries can bring another committee member onboard.

His Excellency, the president, met the team last year in December at State House and requested the members to carry on with the process. Among those present was former Prime Minister who congratulated the team for their efforts.

State House spokesperson Kanze Dena stated that the task force is to spearhead the next phase. “This will largely involve expanding and guiding public participation and structuring recommendations by Kenyans into implementable action plans.”

However, State House hasn’t communicated on the exact date of the extension.
