Mt Kenya Should Be Afraid of BBI - Alice Wahome [VIDEO]

  • Kandara Member of Parliament Alice Wahome on Tuesday, November 26 warned the Mt. Kenya region against the building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

    Speaking at Mukerenju in Murang'a county, Wahome expressed her fears over the parliamentary system speculated to be proposed by BBI stating that Mt. Kenya would suffer.

    "I have fears for the parliamentary system, Mt Kenya will suffer because it has the least number of constituencies. Mt Kenya should be very afraid of anything that will recommend the parliamentary system," she warned.

    She went ahead to poke holes in the BBI report presented to President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House Nairobi on Tuesday, November 26.

    "BBI from conception is wrong, the answer will be wrong today and it is likely to bring division instead of unity," she affirmed.

    While addressing mourners during the burial of Embakasi West MP George Theuri's father, Wahome also questioned the handshake between Uhuru and opposition leader Raila Odinga accusing them of having left out other important leaders.

    "The name of the child being born today is Uhuru and Raila. The beginning of the handshake excluded very key leaders in this country because it symbolised friendship. However, the biggest question is why was George Aladwa, Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula, Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Kuria and myself left out?"

    The anticipated BBI report has evoked mixed reactions from opposing parties, with most urging Kenyans to shun it, even before its contents were revealed.

    However, in his Sagana State Lodge meeting on November 15, the President dispelled long-held doubts over the same report, assuring citizens from the block that the BBI  would be presented to the people and would be debated accordingly.

    The report is set to be officially launched to the public, on Wednesday, November 26, for scrutiny but nevertheless some publications have already published supposed contents of the report indicating the proposal of the introduction of a prime minister position appointed by the executive president in addition to already existing cabinet positions.
