President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday, December 12, 2019, extended the term of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) taskforce.

According to State House spokesperson, Kanze Dena, President Uhuru Kenyatta gave more time for the taskforce in order for them to assist in breaking down the report to Kenyans.

“This will largely involve expanding and guiding public participation, and structuring recommendations by Kenyans into implementable action plans,” Kanze Dena said.

She further stated that both the President and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga thanked the Senator Yusuf haji led team for bringing forth an all-inclusive report.

A number of Kenyans online did not take the move lightly because they did not understand why the extension was given and could not hold back their frustrations.

Rurizs Rurizs - Wastage of public resources youth need jobs, the money used by these could go a long way in creating employment opportunities to our young people

Raphael Okwama - Congratulations BBI team at least now your children and grandchildren can have food on their tables, that’s the full representation we need as a sign of public participation.

Micah Wambugu - How much are they being paid? just curious because if #BBI is best for everyone they should not be paid but their travel, meals, accommodation can be facilitated but to avoid all this just appoint a task force from every counter since wao ndo wako kwa ground.

The period of extension is, however, unclear but in accordance with the report the implementation of the report should be within 18 months.
