President Uhuru has listened to Kenyans in the BBI Bill, says Maangi
Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi says the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill has factored in most of the views presented by various individuals and groups right after the launch of the report a month ago.
Maangi says, the Bill is much favourable and has accommodated a good portion of recommendations that were presented by the team that had opposed the initial report.
“The Country can have a better future should leaders strive to reach a consensus on issues considered critical. Unity is key and we don’t want to divide the Country on matters we can sit and agree on.”
The Deputy Governor says some politicians and other members of the public were against having political parties pick on IEBC Commissioners. “The changes have been attended to and we will now have the Senate as the Upper House.”
Maangi, a close ally to Deputy President William Ruto says the 35 per cent funds to the Counties is a great move and will see devolved units put more meaningful development projects.
Two weeks ago, he agreed to work with Interior and National Coordination Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiangi for the sake of Gusii unity.
However, he insists he is still supporting Ruto for the Country’s top seat.
