Tanga Tanga MP asks Uhuru to stop BBI rallies

Sunday, February 23rd, 2020 20:18 | By

Kiharu Member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro wants President Uhuru Kenyatta to halt the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rallies over claims of ethnic profiling during the Narok rally on Saturday.

"I request the President to stop the BBI rallies until we are told the fate of those Kikuyus being told to go back to their ancestral homes," said Nyoro.

The MP was speaking at a church service in Embu County where he had accompanied Deputy President William Ruto.

Gatundu South MP Parliament Moses Kuria also accompanied the DP.

At the Embu church service, Nyoro expressed his displeasure with the BBI rally in Narok and the preceding consultative meeting where some leaders walked out.

"I am a very bitter Kenyan and this drama has to end. There's no Kenyan who should kneel down to be allowed to do business or vie for any elective post anywhere in the country," said the first-time MP.

Narok Rally

The Narok BBI rally has faced a backlash among some political sympathizers who alleged that some politicians ethnically profiled some communities living in Narok and Kajiado counties.

On Saturday, Ndindi Nyoro accused Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina of pointing fingers against some communities living in Narok.

"If Ledama and other Tinga surrogates are men enough...We don't come to the political scene carrying babies, na mkiona tumenyamaza, not that we are not cowards," wrote Nyoro on his Facebook handle.

Allies of DP Ruto skipped the BBI rally in Narok.

Instead, the politicians took to social media to disparage the BBI report alleging it is being used to sow discord and hate in the country.

During a Friday meeting by over 1000 delegates at Masai Mara University ahead of the rally, Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno and Narok Deputy Governor Evalyn Aruasa walked out over claims of tribal profiling.
