The Machakos Anglican bishop says something is still not clear about the Building Bridges Initiative report that was launched last December by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking to reporters at Kithyoko on Thursday evening, Bishop Joseph Mutugi said he was getting more suspicious about the report that was meant to unite the country, but which was becoming a source of divisions.
“If there is something we do not know about this report, it is better we are told now because the heated debates and disagreements arising from it imply some hidden intentions,” he stated
The ACK bishop said the ultimate goal of the BBI should be peace and unity.
“Whether it is implemented through referendum or discussion, whether one supports and another is against it and even if one has planned the BBI meeting and another is invited, there should be no fights.”
The Tangatanga group allied to Deputy President William Ruto has vowed to attend all the BBI rallies with the fifth one to be held in Meru County soon. The first was in Kisii, the second in Kakamega, the third in Mombasa and the fourth in Kitui.
As the politicians spoke at a funeral in Murang’a County that the DP also attended, Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen said no one should see their support Ruto as disrespect to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
DP Ruto said that every Kenyan’s views matter and should not be ignored.
