Devolution CS Wamalwa calls on Western Kenya residents to support the BBI

Devolution Cabinet Secretary (CS), Eugene Wamalwa, has urged western Kenya residents and their elected leaders to support the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) wholeheartedly.

Wamalwa termed the BBI as the best tool through which reforms, national unity and development will be promoted for posterity.

CS Wamalwa said the document provides a platform for Kenyans to review the dreams founding fathers had for the country and the current challenges facing them with an intention of seeking for lasting solutions.

He stressed the need for tolerance of opinion, saying politicians should shun petty politics based on self-interests, political parties and tribe and critique the report constructively for the good of the country.

CS made the remarks in Webuye  during the burial of Painito Musiambo, the father to  the Deputy Head of Public Service, Wanyama Musiambo.

Speaking at the same function, Kakamega Governor, Wycliffe Oparanya, said that there is an urgent need to cure the current ethnic antagonism, insecurity, corruption, and poor national ethos.

He said that to ensure inclusivity in government and to attain objectives of devolution envisaged in BBI, Kenyans should look beyond their political affiliations.

Oparanya urged local politicians to desist from using BBI to get political mileage.
