Stop politicking over BBI, urges Katoo

MP says there is nothing controversial in document to keep the country in an election mood

By Musa Moilo

Kajiado South MP Katoo ole Metito is opposed to the endless politicking related to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

“If it were not for the succession politics of 2022, there is nothing controversial in that document to keep the country in an election mood for the next three years,” said Ole Metito.

All it takes, he said, was for the three Maa-speaking counties to meet and come up with a memorandum to the BBI Committee “and we are done with this issue.” He thanked political leaders in Kajiado County for embracing cohesion, adding that the county has not witnessed the kind of “political drama seen in other counties.”

He nevertheless thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for appointing Kajiado Governor Joseph ole Lenku to coordinate BBI events in the three Maa counties of Kajiado, Narok and Samburu.

Ole Metito made the remarks when he hosted Kajiado Deputy Governor Martin Moshisho in Amboseli, where they presided over the passing out of Conservancy Academy game wardens.

The two leaders urged Kajiado residents to rally behind BBI and pledged to “fully support President Kenyatta”.

Moshisho said as much as they support BBI, “our main agenda is to deliver on promises we made to the people of Kajiado County.”

He thanked the president for appointing Lenku to head the BBI in the South Rift. “Here in Kajiado, we don’t want to talk about issues affecting political leaders, but rather those affecting local residents working hard to make ends meet,” added moshisho.

The over 400 graduating wardens will help protect wildlife from poachers and also enhance good relations with the community in the Amboseli ecosystem.
