Kirinyaga Women Representative Wangui Ngirichi hits on Governor Anne Waiguru new move for seeking a settlement over the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).


Mrs Ngirichi maintained that the Tangatanga team had long recommended that the initiative was divisive, hence the need to have a consensus, advice she states fell on deaf ears.


She addressed people in Mwea during the issuance of affirmative action fund cheques to different women groups.

“There are those who actively went around the country popularizing the BBI reggae, which was characterised by chest-thumping and mockery and as such could not pave way for fruitful deliberations,” she said.


“Now, some have started changing the tune and propose a collaborative process, we know what they are seeking is a political mileage. Is she not among governors who criticised Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata for revealing to President Kenyatta that BBI was unpopular in Mt Kenya?”


Ngirici said that there is a set of new leaders ready to ditch the BBI.

She said Tangatanga welcome leaders who will subscribe to the development-minded policies.

“They castigated Kang’ata just like they have been doing to us that we have been disrespecting the president. Who in the very end has shown disrespect? The people who from the onset told the president to correct his way or the people who form the very beginning knew it was not working but hid the truth?” She posed.


Ngirici maintained that BBI initiative should not be treated as a priority at the cost of suffering Kenyans.


“There are important agenda that need the government’s attention before thinking of taking the country to a referendum. That’s why we have been opposing this initiative all along,” she said.
