” We are going to sensitize you but for now stop listening to propaganda about BBI which I can assure you is good for all of us,” she said.
Former Dagotetti South MP, Dennis Waweru said Kenyans of all walks of life stood to benefit more when there’s economic stability and that is what President Uhuru Kenyatta wants for Kenyans. Waweru noted that BBI will enhance gains made under devolution and exuded confidence that Kenyans will overwhelmingly vote for it.
“The moment we got the 1 million signatures it was a greenlight to take the Bill to the County assemblies. I expect no Governor to oppose BBI because through it, more resources will be allocated to counties.”
Utawala Ward MCA Patric Karani said that Nairobi residents are willing to support the process as long as they are convinced of its bnefits.Karani urged the DG to use her time well and help solve perenial lland issues in Nairobi and especially in Utawala area.
