We’ll take head-on BBI critics, says Governor Joho


Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has warned the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) critics to brace for a bruising battel once the team’s report is out.
Speaking in Malindi during the burial of Ngumbao Jola, uncle to Ganda MCA who was killed during the ward by-election campaigns, Joho said they are ready to negotiate with the critics, but if they continue opposing the report, they will take them head-on.
“We are ready to battle with anybody, if it means going round, we will and if it’s talking we shall talk,” he said.
The governor insisted that BBI will bring forth an all-inclusive system of government, where all Kenyans will feel included.
Joho was accompanied by Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi, who argued that the BBI will address historical injustices in the country.
Also in attendance was Opposition chief Raila Odinga
The BBI team is expected to hand over the report to President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga after finalising it.
Even before it is made public, the BBI report has received criticism, especially from forces allied to Deputy President William Ruto, who have termed it a plot to finish him politically.
However, Joho is now warning that supporters of the BBI and its report will ensure that the proposals made by the taskforce are realised.
