Deputy President Dr William Ruto is set to attend his first ever Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally.
According to Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria, who is also a staunch Tanga Tanga member, The DP will attend the Meru BBI rally.
Ruto will be attending the rally alongside its brainchild the ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
The rally is scheduled for February 29, 2020, with Moses Kuria noting that it will be the best rally so far.
“The Meru BBI rally on 29th February will be the best so far. If inclusivity is one of the aspirations of the BBI, this will be the hallmark of the Meru rally with the Deputy President H.E Dr William Ruto set to attend for the first time alongside former Prime Minister Rt Hon Raila Odinga. This is the Kenya we want,” he posted on facebook.
The first Mt Kenya region BBI meeting was to be held in Meru County on February 15 but was postponed to allow national mourning following the death of former President Daniel Moi.
Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi said the event which will bring together 11 counties in the region will now be held at Kinoru Stadium.
He said the meeting will be preceded by a leaders’ meeting from the 11 counties from the region a day earlier, before their resolutions are read in public.
The county chief further revealed that counties from the region, among them Meru, Tharaka Nithi and Embu had already held their local caucuses and were ready for the inaugural regional BBI meeting.
Other regions expected to make their input are Kirinyaga, Laikipia, Nyeri, Nyandarua, Nakuru, Nairobi, Murang’a and Kiambu counties.
