Elgeyo Marakwet senator Murkomen Kipchumba has declared boldly that the Rift Valley BBI rally will be held on the 21st of March 2020 in Nakuru and it will be different from all others.
The difference, he attributes to the fact that they have agreed that all leaders from all the 11 counties will participate fully without party factions or mini-factions. Each county will hold its consultation, he added.
The leaders will also converge in Eldoret on 19th March to have a harmonized document for the larger Rift Valley Region. Consequently, they will have a consultation meeting for Elgeyo Marakwet in Iten this Friday 14th March 2020.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has since held a consultative meeting with Governors from the Rift Valley Region at State House Nairobi.

The Governors assured H.E Uhuru Kenyatta of their full support of the BBI and informed him that plans for the BBI rally scheduled for Saturday, 21st March 2020, are already in place.
The Governors also expressed their commitment to ensuring unity prevails and that all stakeholders are included in the run-up to the rally.
Prof. Makau Mutua has since poked into the Deputy President William Ruto’s absence while the president hosted the RiftValley Governors.
