Wiper Party Leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has reiterated his stand on the push for the creation of the post of the Prime Minister as proposed in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Speaking during a meeting in Stoni Athi, Machakos County on Thursday, Kalonzo said that he is fully behind the implementation of the report, adding that change is inevitable. He also urged the leaders from the Ukambani region to speak in one voice as they fight to transform the lives of the community in different ways.
“When I said that the prime minister should come from parliament, I was branded watermelon, we are now fighting to have the same points I stood for in this BBI,” said Mr Musyoka.
During the meeting, the leaders from the region promised to rally the electorate behind the BBI report. They urged the residents of the region to support the report for the sake of the economic transformation of the entire nation.
The meeting was attended by several leaders including governors Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni), Alfred Mutua (Machakos) and Charity Ngilu (Kitui). Kalonzo also said that the BBI report should take into consideration the proposals in the Bomas draft if the leaders want to realize a better Kenya in the long.
The leaders from the region were torn between holding one or several rallies following the fallout between Kalonzo and the three county bosses.
