The Building Bridges Initiative taskforce has postponed all the BBI consultative forums to allow the nation to mourn former President Daniel Arap Moi.
The taskforce joint Secretary Paul Mwangi said the step has been taken to pave way for the nation to mourn and accord the deserved respect for the second president of the republic of Kenya.
According to Mwangi, the country is in mourning and it will be prudent for all the consultative forums to be suspended.
The statement comes after drama at Kitui BBI forum where Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria was ejected from the forum.
Kitui County Governor Charity Ngilu on Saturday ordered the ejection of Kuria saying he was being disrespectful to President Uhuru Kenyatta and he was not invited to her forum.
The incident elicited mixed reaction across the country with many Kenyans openly opposing the BBI report.
Various BBI forums have already been conducted in Nyanza, Western and at Mama Ngina water front in Mombasa where politics took centre stage.
The forums will remain suspended until the former President is buried.
Moi died peacefully on Tuesday morning beside his family member at Nairobi hospital.
He has been receiving treatment for the last three months at the hospital with international and local physicians involved.
President Uhuru Kenyatta issues a proclamation on Tuesday morning terming Moi’s death as a great loss.
Moi died aged 95.
