Kibicho drums up support for report

By Fidelis Kabunyi | November 5th 2020 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300

Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho has urged Mt Kenya residents to support reforms under the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), saying the proposed changes would benefit them.

Dr Kibicho said locals should vote for a new law that will protect their interest irrespective of who is in power.

Speaking yesterday in Matuguta village in Githunguri sub-county where he opened a police post and chief’s office, Kibicho said the new laws would save Mt Kenya residents from suffering violence every election cycle.

“If implemented, the proposals will ensure systems work,” the PS said. “You will not have to worry about who becomes president.”

He said BBI addresses gaps in revenue sharing as well profitability of the tea, coffee and dairy sectors which are at the heart of the region’s residents.

MPs who accompanied the CS called on locals to rally behind President Uhuru Kenyatta’s BBI agenda and the Jubilee administration’s development projects.

Gatundu North MP Wanjiku Kibe said the region would benefit with additional 70 MP seats if BBI proposals sail through. Political leaders in the vote-rich region are currently split, with those allied to Deputy President William Ruto insisting on consensus building on the BBI report.
