Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula were surprise guests at the BBI consultative meeting held in Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega County, on Saturday.
Speaking at Bukgungu Stadium, Mudavadi opened up on why he ditched a rally organized by leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto in Mumias for a Kakamega meeting whose chief guest was ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
The ANC party leader said he had attended the meeting to clear the air over misleading information being peddled by his political distractors.
“I have arrived here for several reasons, one, because I am Kenyan and when we have a matter of national importance I have to be here to take part in.
“Secondly, I have come here to clear the air on a number of misreporting, I want to clear the air on political gossips that has been involving me,” said Mudavadi.
He added that in his address at BBI launch in November 2019 was clear that he was in support of the course warning those propagating lies that he is not in support of the BBI to stop.
“Last year when we launched the BBI I was among the speakers who addressed the function and my remarks were clear that I am in support of the BBI.
“I made it clear that BBI must be in support of the common citizens first and I went ahead to demand that the BBI must be taken to the citizens so that they can read, understand it and make amendments where necessary.
“Did I say that or not? So who are you to say that Musalia is not in support of the BBI? This kind of politics of trying to bring divisions among leaders must come to an end,” added Mudavadi.
The ANC party leader went ahead to say that the BBI course should bring all leaders on board as depicted in its agenda failure to which may widen divisions among citizens.
The Kakamega meeting becomes the second BBI consultative meeting to be held in the country after the Kisii one.
The third meeting is set to be held in the coastal region on Saturday 25th January, next week.
Among the leaders who attended the meeting include ODM party leader Raila, Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamlwa Governors Anne Waiguru (Kirinyaga) Charity Ngilu (Kitui) all Nyanza and Western Kenya governors among others.
Several MPs, Senators and MCAs also attended the event.
The meeting comes nearly a week after President Uhuru Kenyatta gazetted the BBI taskforce.
The BBI taskforce preceded the Handshake deal between President Uhuru and the ODM leader in March 2018.
