The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) secretariat co-chairs Junet Mohamed, and Dennis Waweru have dismissed claims that the report was on the verge of collapsing. The duo insisted that the constitutional amendment bill was reverberating, further denying that its secretariat had been closed down and its functions moved to the president’s office.
Speaking on Tuesday, March 30, Waweru said those peddling rumours of BBI collapse were opponents of the report, which was their wishful thinking. In the recent past, the BBI process has been undergoing challenges with a word on the street being it was being rocked by political differences between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
However, the secretariat insisted the handshake between the two was still intact, and the leaders were in constant communication. “The handshake between Uhuru and Raila remains solid, and the two leaders remain committed to the BBI. Their resolve of having a unified inclusive Kenya is unwavering,” read their statement in part.
