Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has called for more decorum in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) debate.
Writing on Twitter on Friday, the governing Jubilee Party senator said that the debate should be conducted in a tolerant and respectful manner.Murkomen observed that there were different sides to the BBI debate, those who strongly support the initiative and those who are strongly opposed to it.
He shared in President Uhuru Kenyatta's appeal to Kenyans to engage in the BBI debate in a manner that respects opposing views.
"BBI debate should be done with tolerance &respect. There are those who have a problem ab initio on matters processes. There are those who even don’t like the word BBI. Yet there those who support without reading&wont read. Like the President said let’s do it with honor and humility, " the Elgeyo Marakwet senator wrote.
Kipchumba Murkomen's intervention came just hours after the BBI committee announced that the report had been completed and an appointment with President Uhuru Kenyatta secured.
The report is expected to be handed to the head of state and veteran opposition and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday.
President Uhuru called leaders from Mount Kenya region a week ago to a meeting at the Sagana State Lodge in what a section of pundits says was to whip them to support the BBI report when it comes out.
