According to Mamboleo, the National Ethos clause in the report seeks to address colonial disputes.

Experts addressing delegates in the first-ever Public County BBI consultative forum in Kisii say the report is centred on two key issues; a new governance structure and devolution.

In their address, the experts, a majority of them advocates, said the report seeks to solve injustices experienced in the country for years.

Advocates Ken Nyaundi, James Mamboleo and Kamau Mbugua, both advocates, say Kenya needs a Governance system that is inclusive and increased resources to the Counties.

"BBI is all about a united, cohesive and peaceful country. We will have a strengthened DCI and DPP to deal with the corrupt," says Nyaundi.

Mbugua on his part said the report talks of improved social well-being, better primary healthcare and a unified food security plan.

According to Mamboleo, the National Ethos clause in the report seeks to address colonial disputes.

"These are disputes that we need to sit as a country and agree to resolve. We need to re-write our history and forget the dark past. The Ministry of Culture should make us feel proud as Kenyans and Africans at large."

The leaders will be addressing more than 3,000 delegates at the Kisii Golf Course before proceeding to the Gusii Stadium to address the public.

Governors Hassan Joho (Mombasa), Charity Ngilu (Kitui), Anne Waiguru (Kirinyaga) and all the six governors from Nyanza attended.

More than 350 police officers both in uniform and those in civilian clothes were deployed inside and outside the venue as well as along Kisii town streets.
