Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa had said the BBI report should be made accessible to all Kenyans especially those who are unable to easily get their hands on it. On Wednesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader received the BBI report at the Kisii State Lodge, which is set to be further delved into at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi on Monday, next week. The two leaders also urged Kenyans to desist from politicizing it, stating that it’s sole focus isn’t about positions.
Barasa, who was speaking to Matili residents at Matili Primary School, urged Kenyans to read and understand the report before making informed decisions. He further urged President Kenyatta to ensure Kenya’s huge debt is paid before channelling funds to adjustments of the report or a Constitutional amendment.
With the rising cases of Covid-19 being reported in Counties, he urged Matili residents to observe the Covid-19 infection prevention directives including wearing of face masks, washing hands regularly with soap and running water and social distancing. He also pledged to finish his projects in the shortest time possible.
