The meeting comes barely a week after the DP's allies drawn from the Mt Kenya region met in Embu to address the same matter.

The leaders have organised a two-day retreat in Naivasha where they will also discuss President Uhuru Kenyatta’s succession. 

The meeting comes at a time when the Jubilee Party appears divided over the implementation of the report. 

A section of Jubilee leaders wants the report implemented by Parliament while others are rooting for a referendum.

Soi MP Caleb Kositany told The Star that plans for the meeting are in top gear. 

“We will meet to go through the report sentence by sentence and analyse what the recommendations mean to us as a community,” he said. 

The meeting will be attended by opinion leaders, religious leaders, elected leaders and professionals from the entire region. It has also emerged that the planners of the event would like to include other communities such as Turkana, Samburu, Maasai and Kalenjins in the meeting.

The BBI report was launched by President Kenyatta on Wednesday, last week at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.
