Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has called on Coastal residents to rally behind the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) for a better and brighter Kenya.
Joho said the BBI process spearheaded by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga is a unifying process that deserves Kenyans support.
He said the political process seeks to end hostility among diverse communities in every election cycle.
The Governor said BBI process needs grassroots support since it seeks to end among others things hostility among the diverse communities in the country.
He spoke in Jacaranda Beach Hotel, Kwale when he met representatives of the Kikuyu community living in Msambweni constituency, Kwale County.
Joho who is also the ODM Deputy party leader was in the constituency to drum up support for the party’s flag bearer Omar Boga in the Msambweni parliamentary by-election slated for December 15.
Joho was accompanied by ODM nominee Omar Boga and ODM nominated Senator Dr. Agnes Zani during his meet-the-people tours in the region.
The seat fell vacant following the death of the immediate Member of Parliament for the constituency Suleiman Dori in March, 2020.
“The BBI process will deliver a better and brighter Kenya with progress and development felt by all the communities in the country” said Joho.
He termed Boga as the ‘BBI and handshake candidate’ who enjoys the blessings and goodwill of both President Kenyatta and former Premier Raila Odinga.
Joho also said the BBI process stands for inclusivity and shared prosperity and urged Kenyans to rally behind the popular initiative.
