BBI report finally launched

President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM Party leader Raila Odinga on Wednesday launched the eagerly awaited BBI report.

The two chiefs encouraged Kenyans to keep away from troublesome politics cautioning that it destroys the nation and influences the economy negatively.

On the other hand, Raila Odinga referred to the period during the 2017 polls when the IEBC was to announce results, however he and his group protested.

“You went to Kasarani, we went to Bomas. Our people wanted us to burn your portraits and start collecting taxes. I realised that was taking us to Somalia. It took us 19 hours. Wasn’t easy. We had called each other all sorts of names,” Odinga said.

As indicated by him, nations, for example, Tanzania are not stalled by tribalism as residents acknowledge each other regardless of affiliations.

The ODM Party chief said there will be a team of specialists who will look at proposals of Kenyans.
