Kenyan business tycoon Chris Kirubi has thrown his weight behind the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Kirubi declared his support for the initiative spearheaded by President Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga during an event at Two Rivers Mall on Thursday.
He further called on Uhuru and Odinga to fast-track the release of the BBI report to pave the way for a referendum to introduce changes to the Constitution.
"We are eagerly waiting for the report because it is overdue and it is something we support, ” Kirubi said during the function attended by Odinga.
BBI was established following the March 9th, 2018, handshake between Uhuru and Odinga to look at nine key issues dogging the country among them ethnic antagonism and corruption.
Speaking at the same event, Raila reiterated his commitment to addressing the country’s socio-political and economic ills alongside President Kenyatta.
“Kenya does not deserve to be where it is today, we want a Kenya that is united as it is in our national anthem, that we shall dwell in unity, peace and liberty, and that plenty be found within our borders. But that plenty will not drop down like manna from heaven, it will come through the sweat and toil of our people, we need to give our people an opportunity to be able to be more gainfully employed,” said Odinga.
“BBI will bring us together, we mean well for Kenyans with the president,” he added.
