Sunday January 26, 2020 - Former Machakos Senator, Johnstone Muthama, has asked Kenyans to reject the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) because it has been hijacked by extortionists and cartels.
Speaking in Kiambu County on Saturday during the burial of former Matiliku Boys Principal and father-in-law to KMTC chairperson, Prof Philip Kaloki, Muthama said that the initiative has been seized by power brokers and has divided Kenyans through ethnicity.
Muthama’s sentiments were echoed by former Kibwezi MP, Kalembe Ndile, who faulted the Government for punishing BBI critics.
Ndile reiterated that there should be critics if at all BBI is genuine about bringing the country together
These sentiments from prominent leaders who hail from Ukambani come amid calls from Kalonzo Musyoka that Kenyans should support BBI proposals because they are for the benefit of the country.
Kalonzo who spoke at Mama Ngina Waterfront during the BBI rally on Saturday said that the exercise should unite all Kenyans.
