Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa has urged Governors not to start another constitutional or reforms push, the Ugatuzi initiative, coupled with the Building Bridges Initiative or Punguza Mizigo. Governors through the Council of Governors are set to launch their own constitutional change bid, with the main focus on devolution, dubbed Ugatuzi initiative.

Speaking at Kiminini Catholic church during a funds drive, CS Wamalwa urged Governors to wait for the BBI report, go through it, before making any decision on further reforms’ push, adding that whatever they want may be factored in the report.

The evolution CS said the positions which may be recommended in the BBI report including the Prime Minister’s position aren’t reserved for certain individuals only, “Who said positions like the Prime Minister’s are reserved for certain individuals? I’m also fit to be the Prime Minister of this country,” he said.

He further urged residents not to personalize the contents of he BBI report, saying it’s aimed at providing equal shares and opportunities when it comes to leadership in the country, given the divisions and cracks that have been evident especially after general elections. He noted that when leaders get slots in leadership as a result of a new leadership structure, there will be no fighting after elections.
