Rift valley governors present their BBI report in low key event

By Jacob Ng'etich | March 22nd 2020

Ten governors from Rift Valley region yesterday presented their proposals to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) steering committee in a low key event in Nairobi.

Initially, the governors were to present a joint harmonised proposal to the BBI task force to represent the entire region at a rally in Afraha Stadium in Nakuru. But yesterday each county boss gave individual copies to the task force chaired by Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji.

A week ago, Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui postponed the Afraha rally in consultation with governors from the Rift Valley and the national BBI secretariat after the Ministry of Health banned public gatherings.

The Nakuru rally had been billed a possible political face-off between allies of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga on one hand and those of Deputy President William Ruto on the other.

Ruto allies had vowed to take charge of the event as opposed to the seven other rallies where Raila and politicians allied to him and President Kenyatta had held much say.

Yesterday, BBI task force Vice-Chairman Adams Oloo said the governors had each presented their county’s proposals because they did not have time to harmonise their documents. “It will be for the secretariat to process the documents presented,” said Mr Oloo.
