Meru Will Not Support BBI, Kiraitu Says

KEY POINTS

  • Speaking at the burial of Francis Marete Mbogori, father of Weru TV CEO, Murungi said he will not support the document before analyzing it.
  • Speaking on the 2022 polls, the governor said he will have to scrutinize the presidential candidates before making a decision.
  • Murungi and nominated MP Halima Mucheke asked the youths not to be used by politicians to cause chaos, saying there is not permanent enmity or friendship.

Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi says he is undecided on whether to rally his county behind the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) since he is still dark on the content of the report

The governor said he will have to scrutinize the report before making a decision adding that he will only support the document if it benefits the electorate.

Speaking at the burial of Francis Marete Mbogori, father of Weru TV CEO, Murungi said he will not support the document before analyzing it.

“As of now, I am not supporting and I am not against BBI because I don’t know what is in it. If I see that it has benefits for the people of Meru, I will tell the people that it is good and we vote for it. If it is only meant to benefit others, we will reject it,” Murungi said.

Speaking on the 2022 polls, the governor said he will have to scrutinize the presidential candidates before making a decision.

“It is about our own interests. We are tired of preparing food, chewing it, and only for others to swallow,” he said.

Meru Senator Mithika Linturi said it was wrong to start rallying people behind BBI, meant to create seats for a few people instead of thinking about job creation for Kenyans.

Murungi and nominated MP Halima Mucheke asked the youths not to be used by politicians to cause chaos, saying there is not permanent enmity or friendship.

“In the campaigns we did, we said if Raila crosses a river, we can never drink it and now he is the one welcoming us to the State House,” he said.

“The next you meet him, because of the things you have been doing, you don’t know how to relate with him. This (politics) is a very strange business we are in.”
