Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to delay the release of the much-hyped Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

Two weeks ago, the BBI task force announced that the report was ready, adding that they were waiting for a signal from the State House, so that they can hand it over to the president and his handshake partner Raila Odinga.

In an interview with Standard, Kuria argued the president could have delayed in receiving the report as he was waiting for the dust in Kibra parliamentary by-election to settle, before he could make public the recommendations of the BBI team.

The vocal MP accused ODM of propagating electoral violence during the Kibra mini-poll which was against the spirit of Uhuru-Raila unity pact. 

Kuria argued since BBI resulted from the handshake, the Head of State should not release the report before the ODM leader apologises to victims of Kibra chaos.

"If that is the case then Uhuru should not unveil the report before Raila gives his apologies for what happened in Kibra. The violence by members of the ODM was a wet blanket on BBI," he said.

Deputy President William Ruto has also waded into the debate saying Raila must apologise to all those who were hurt during the tension-filled Kibra mini-poll.

"As Kenyans we demand that Tinga/his party unconditionally, unequivocally and publicly renounce the culture of violence, chaos, terror and gangsterism their signature modus operandi as witnessed in Kibra and unreservedly apologise to victims past and present for their hurt and loss," the DP tweeted on Saturday.
