Raila calls for Nyanza BBI summit

Must read

Opposition leader Raila Odinga has planned a major meeting with stakeholders from the four Luo Nyanza Counties on February 8 where BBI will be the main agenda.

In a move to get the backing to amend the Supreme law of the land through a popular initiative, both President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila have now retreated to their backyard to drum support for Building Bridges Initiative days after it got the green light from the electoral body.

The Ciala resort meeting comes almost one week President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Sagana meet to rally the ‘reluctant’ Mount Kenya region behind the proposed constitutional amendments.

In Kisumu, Raila will be meeting all Governors, MPs, Professionals and Members of the four County Assemblies of Migori, Homabay, Kisumu and Siaya.

The meeting will also bring on board representative of Kisumu business community and Luo Council of Elders.

Already invitation has been sent to almost 800 participants to the Nyanza regional Consultative meeting.

According to the letter dated January 29, each of the four counties will be represented by 200 delegates.

“You are hereby notified of a consultative meeting bringing together elected leaders, Council of Elders, professionals and Business people in the four counties specified above to be held on Monday, February 8, 2021, to be chaired by Party Leader Raila Odinga,” read part of the letter signed by ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna.

“It is expected that each County delegation shall consist of not more than 200 people. The office of the Host Governor, Hon Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o shall be in contact with each county delegation through the respective Governor to provide further details on the meeting, “the letter reads in part.
