Mt. Kenya region elites select five members to initiate the Building Bridges Initiative(BBI) drives to popularize the document.


Kirinyaga senator Charles Kibiru leads the team assisted by Igembe North Member of Parliament(MP) Maoka Maore.


The team composition came after a three-hour closed-door meeting in one of the hotels in Murang'a on Saturday.


Speaking to the media after the meeting, National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya said the team to spearhead other leaders, educate people in the region on the contents of the BBI.


Others elected were Embu Woman Rep Jane Wanjuki as secretary, Limuru MP Peter Mwathi as organising secretary and Ruth Mwaniki (Kigumo MP) as his assistant.


Kimunya said there lacks sufficient information on the report which has confused the people.


He added that there will be massive sensitization to the people before a referendum.


"We want people to know what is in the document and the benefits they stand to gain from it," said Kimunya.


"If people get to know the content of the report, then they will understand why we are telling them to support it," he added.


He said the leaders have agreed to work as a team to ensure BBI gains popularity and its acceptance by the locals.
