Allies of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga are now piling pressure on President Uhuru Kenyatta to unveil the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.
The BBI task force was formed following the March 9, 2018 handshake between Uhuru and Raila and was mandated to collect views from Kenyans on how to end the country's serious challenges such as tribalism and divisive elections.
The Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji-led team was expected to hand over the report during the Mashujaa Day celebrations but it never happened.
A section of Odinga's allies led by National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohamed are now calling for the release of the report which is said to have used Sh10 billion to compile.
“Kenyans have a right to know the recommendations of the BBI team, We hope it will be received soon,” said Mohamed as quoted by Sunday Standard.
Expressing similar sentiments, Uriri MP Mark Nyamita said Uhuru should not sit on the much-hyped report, arguing doing so was causing unnecessary anxiety among Kenyans and raising political temperatures.
“We are done with Kibra election and I am sure the president can now receive the BBI report and make it public, so that we can debate it,” Nyamita said.
On his part, Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior, who is allied to former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, said time was ripe for the Head of State to make BBI report public.
"Kibra’s dramatic by-election and the census results offered the much needed distraction from the BBI pending report . There is no reason for this report to remain under wraps," he tweeted.
