Karua, Kibwana: Stand firm, fight, reject BBI report

Narc-Kenya leader Martha Karua and Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana have urged Kenyans to reject the Building Bridges Initiative reforms as a repudiation of the “arrogance” of President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM boss Raila Odinga.

The two leaders said the nation should instead reform the “broken” electoral system.

“We must reject the BBI because of the handshake brothers’ utter contempt for Kenyans,” Ms Karua said on Friday during the annual Narc-Kenya alumni dinner at Sarova Panafric in Nairobi.

Prof Kibwana was the chief guest.

The former Justice Minister questioned the rationale of pushing on with the referendum in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and demanded that the government sets aside funds to support testing and treatment in all public facilities.

Prof Kibwana warned that BBI will take Kenya into uncharted territory, arguing that the country’s biggest problem is ethnicity.

“Kenyans need to be bold and stand up against BBI,” he said, accusing the President and Mr Odinga of using the process to form a coalition for the 2022 polls.

“It’s time to fight again and stop changes that will make Kenya lose its trajectory. Be watchful, work hard. Mobilise, stand firm and don’t allow our country to get into uncharted territory.

“The premise of BBI is anchored on an idea of acting to stem the electoral turmoil witnessed in each electoral cycle,” he charged, arguing that the handshake has never been socialised to unite Kenyans.

“It has remained a handshake between two people.”

Elsewhere, on Sunday, ODM leader Raila Odinga explained how the decision to come up with the Ombudsman office was reached at.

The opposition chief held a consultative meeting with governors drawn from the Western region in Kisumu, attended by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and Labor PS Nelson Marwa.

Raila said that the introduction of the Judiciary Ombudsman is for the benefit of the members of the public, more so those who would like to raise complaints about the judiciary.
