The Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) seems to be the drama within the drama as the awaited day finally approached.
The country heaved a sigh of relief after the joint task force team, headed by Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji, announced that the report would be handed over to the brains behind the project, President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
It is reported that the handover ceremony is expected to take place at State House with a list of dignitaries set to grace the ceremony.
Information suggests that Deputy President William Ruto is among the people invited for the historic event.
A new twist has, however, emerged with news that some of Ruto’s allies have been shut out from a similar function that is to take place on Wednesday.
Media reports pointed out that four MPs from the DP’s camp will not be part of the delegation at Bomas of Kenya when the contents of the crucial document are made public.
A wounded Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri remarked that he will not set foot at the gathering after being overlooked during a past function.
The embattled Ngunjiri alleged that he was left out during the Sagana Lodge meeting organised by Uhuru.
“I’m not ready to be humiliated again as they did during the Sagana State lodge meeting where I was locked out in a tent… Before even that report is made public, there were clear signs of what it was intended to do,” stated Kimani.
Tetu MP James Gichuhi joins the bandwagon of those leaders that were put to shame during a forum that was supposed to unite the Mt Kenya region.
“I don’t want to suffer the humiliation that happened in Sagana,” noted Gichuhi.
Belgut MP Nelson Koech, on his part, reiterated that no one from his area had been invited to the ceremony despite details that there were invitations issued to leaders.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi is alleged to have commented that he will be nowhere near the venue despite being accorded an opportunity to the meeting.
To add to insult to injury, Elegeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen is reported to have highlighted that he is also not aware of the invitations.
Murkomen expressed that his focus was directed to helping the disaster-stricken families of West Pokot County.
Efforts to reach the political leaders were futile at the time the article was published.
Despite the end of the wait, the differences emerging from the initiative seem to be growing more than the anticipated findings of the project by the two leaders.
Ruto has been propagated to be at the forefront of preaching against the brainchild of the handshake which he claimed was being poisoned by Raila.
The Jubilee party member defended himself that his work was to help Uhuru push for development projects and not BBI.
Activist Nazlin Umar earlier came out guns blazing that the three leaders were taking Kenyans for a joy ride.
The once presidential candidate alleged that Ruto was using the negative attitude to grow his numbers that have been greatly affected by scandals involved in.
