In summary

Former ruling party, Kenya African National Union (KANU) has said that it will drum up support for the implementation of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) proposals.

Mt.Kenya Kanu regional chairman Joseph Mukirae said that the aim of the report is to seek a lasting solution to perennial violence the country has witnessed each election cycle.

He called on Kenyans to read and fully understand the contents of the recommendations which has since been released by President Uhuru Kenyatta saying that the same is tailored to unite the country and dismissed those opposed to it as enemies of unity and development.

"The head of state is the country's anointed leader and hence, can't mislead the nation by asking them to support a thing which can cause disharmony among them. BBI is all about inclusivity and therefore we as a party are ready to support it," he said.

The chairman at the same time sought to clarify that the former ruling party is intending to dispose off some of it's assets to raise funds to run it's affairs effectively.  

On the contrary, he said that the party has set out modalities to list and document all its assets including land, plots, and buildings with a view of acquiring title deeds for the same.

"We have no intention of selling any of our properties. Rather, we are planning to conduct an inventory of what we have in matters property and acquire title deeds and then, through the national office, decide on the way forward," he told People Daily Online in Kiambu town.

He further said that the party is set to start a door to door campaign aimed at popularizing Baringo senator Gideon Moi as it's 2022 Presidential candidate.

"Gideon Moi is our best bet as central region residents in 2022 and he has assured us that he will steer our area and the country to greater heights of development devoid of corruption".
