Mombasa Catholic Archbishop Martin Kivuva is calling on Kenyans to support the Building Bridges Intuitive (BBI) report.
He said Kenyans should read and offer the way forward on the BBI report saying it contains some important recommendations for the well-being of the country.
Speaking when he graced a cultural event organized by Kiembeni Catholic parish, Archbishop Kivuva said the BBI will steer the country on the path of reconciliation and lasting unity.
The church organized the cultural festival to celebrate and preserve the diverse cultural background of the worshippers.
“For example it contains recommendations on how to strengthen devolution which will spread development across the country” he said.
He said the initiative will strengthen devolution through more resource allocation to the devolved units.
Archbishop Kivuva said the devolved functions of the counties may not benefit Kenyans in the long run if there is no significant increase in funding.
He said the initiative will end chaos, violence and division that characterize the country during election periods.
He said the BBI report seeks to cure the ‘Winner takes it all’ culture after a presidential election saying the system has been the root cause of Kenya’s electoral problems.
Archbishop said the initiative seeks to fight endemic corruption which he said is at the heart of the problems facing the country.
