Businessman John Mbugua weighs in on BBI signatures collection drive

Nakuru based businessman John Mbugua has cited lack of adequate information on the referendum drive as a major hindrance in collection of signatures within Nakuru County.

He says despite the signature drive,  a section of residents  have been reluctant to do append their signatures.

The Business tycoon says a  number of residents in Bahati sub county have notion that appending their signatures was approving the document.

Speaking on Wednesday when he led a sensitization for locals on the importance of collecting signatures, Mbugua noted that there was so much misinformation on the signature collection drive.

“Even as the exercise comes to a close, there is need for the government to ensure a massive awareness campaign on the same. I want to urge Kenyans to come out in large numbers so that we can reach our target of at least 30,000 signatures in Bahati to aid in the referendum drive” said Mbugua.

The Businessman also weighing in on the re-opening of schools.

According to him, COVID-19 cases in schools were an eye opener for the government and heads of institutions to be ready for any eventuality.

His sentiments coming just days after COVID-19 hit  Bahati and Kiamaina secondary schools leading to suspension of learning for some time.

Mbugua now wants more measures in schools to avert spread of COVID-19 cases.

He has called on government to employ counseling programs to cover teachers and students as a number of them are psychologically unstable.

“The government should set a one-week program to which professional counselors will be brought in to try and ensure the students are mentally stable before learning kick off” he said.
