On preparations for the Building Bridges Initiative debate,President uhuru builds ground in the Mount Kenya region.Tells the central leaders,he is open to new ideas and denies existence of 2022 political deal with the opposition leader,Raila Odinga.
On his own words ,
on succession ,
“I hear people claim that Uhuru Kenyatta wants to become prime minister of Kenya.I wouldn’t mind being in leadership in such a post,I am still in Jubilee,I have never said am leaving.Jubilee had a candidate in the Kibera by-elections,who lost.We as well noticed,although we had violence in kibera l but not in the scale it was in 2007 and 2017 and this has clearly depicted handshake.Though, let’s first deal with the current situation.
“The BBI will be achieved by consensus and not campaign based.When I get BBI,I will print copies and give everyone to read and debate and we can agree or disagree. Even my handshake deal with Raila I didn’t tell him I will support him should he express his interest in the presidency 2022.The intent of our meeting was that we prioritise peace in Kenya.”
