Civil society groups told to sensitize Kenyans on BBI



Civil Society groups in the country have been urged to step in and create pubic awareness of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) document that was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Maureen Kemunto, a director at Transform Empowerment for Action Initiative (TEAM) says politicians will hijack the process and in the long end confuse the electorates.

Kemunto says politicians will only propagate what benefits them and leave out other vital information in the document.

She says non state actors are better placed to disseminate the information as contained in the report to the public.

Kemunto says with giving all the information contained in the report, Kenyans will gauge if indeed what they gave to the BBI team is well captured.

Speaking to the press in Kisumu after the launch of the report in Nairobi also attended by ODM party leader Raila Odinga, the civil society groups say the public has a right to understand the content of the report.

Kisumu City Residents Voice Association (KCEREVO) chairman Audi Ogada echoed the same sentiments while rallying even the church to educate worshipers on the content of the report.

Ogada urged the public not to listen to the opinions of politicians but make an attempt to ensure they get the full information as contained in the documents.

He told literate Kenyans to read the document but called for assistance for those who cannot read and comprehend what is entailed in the report.
