Stop messing up BBI rallies,politicians told

Nakuru businessman who is also a member of Jubilee Party James Karimi has lashed out at a section of Jubilee Legislators for trying to interfere with planned BBI public sensitization rallies in the country.

He says the BBI should be supported by all Jubilee Legislators as per the President’s directive.

Karimi calling on political class who have in one way crossed lines with the President to apologize and live in unity as before.

He says President Uhuru Kenyatta who is also the leader of Jubilee Party should be respected by legislators.

Addressing media in Nakuru after holding a meeting with a representation from all tribes in Nakuru,Karimi said the BBI is meant to unite Kenyans and no politician should hijack and oppose it.

“We have all tribes in Nakuru and Politicians should respect them for the sake of unity”said Karimi.

While lauding the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga,the Naivasha based politician called on all political leaders to emulate the same for the sake of the people.

According to Karimi,Kenyans will only enjoy the fruits of their toil if there is peace.

On the forthcoming Nakuru BBI rally that was scheduled for this weekend but postponed to March 21,Karimi welcomed the move.

He urged Nakuru leaders to use the platform and ensure the issues of Nakuru residents are inclusive through a memorandum.

He said the postponement of the Nakuru BBI rally is an opportunity for all leaders to have a consultation in preparation for the 21st.

Once again,the Naivasha based businessman warning a section of Politicians against interfering with the planned Nakuru Rally.

“Let Politicians stop hijacking the BBI rallies.In Nakuru we need peace and we shall not allow any politician to mess us here.We support the BBI and we are ready as the President directed” said Karimi.

John Njoroge representing youths from Njoro sub county who also attended the meeting convened by Karimi also calling for sobriety in the BBI rallies.

While citing the historical injustices experienced in Nakuru during the 2007/2008 post election violence,Njoroge urged leaders in Nakuru county to ensure they present a memorundum to the BBI team on the same.

“Here in Nakuru we experienced a lot of historical injustices and we must ensure whatever we present to the BBI team also touches on the same” said Njoroge.
