Duale now gives new conditions before supporting BBI
The North Eastern region will only support the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) if three demands are addressed, National Assembly Leader of Majority Aden Duale has said.
Speaking on Saturday at Boys Town Secondary School during a meeting with parents and students, Duale said there was no way the region would support BBI when it is facing many problems especially in the education sector.
A BBI rally is slated for next weekend in Garissa town which the leadership of Northeastern are expected to attend.
Duale had last week said he will not be attending the meetings that he termed a ‘confusion’.
Referring to the recent mass transfers of non-local teachers by the Teachers Service Commission from the counties of Mandera, Wajir and Garissa, the Garissa Town MP wondered why the commission would rush into making such a decision without consulting.
Candid discussion “Let me make it very clear. For us to discuss BBI the following must be done: We must candidly discuss why schools are closing in northeastern and our children are being denied the right to quality education. We also must discuss the serious insecurity bedeviling our region. Finally we must discuss the doctored census figures,” said Duale
