About 100 parliamentarians from DP William Ruto’s Rift Valley backyard have unanimously thrown their weight behind the BBI report, saying it captures the people’s concerns.
Their announcement on Friday followed a two-day retreat at Lake Naivasha Resort in Naivasha of at least 97 leaders from the region’s 14 counties, who are allied to the DP.
In what appeared to be a surprise turn of events, the legislators said they were ready to support proposed amendments to the Constitution, whether through Parliament or a referendum.
“We fully support the BBI report, especially on matters of agriculture and livestock, inclusivity and unity in diversity, security, socio-economic development and opportunities for the youth,” stated resolutions read by Kajiado South MP Katoo ole Metito.
“As advised by President Uhuru Kenyatta, we encourage all our constituents to read , internalise, reflect and debate the contents of the BBI report.”
