State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena has reiterated that Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) is not about 2022 succession politics, but about uniting the county.

 Dena said  President Uhuru Kenyatta is keen on leaving a united nation contrary to previous years when the country used to plunge into chaos during and after elections.

 “It is clear in the President’s mind that this country needs to be united, the BBI is not about 2022, but even after the General Election,” she said.

 Speaking during Milele  FM breakfast show yesterday, Dena said the President, at the moment, has kept off politics to concentrate on development agenda.

Deputy President William Ruto and his allies have raised reservations about the initiative he Opposition chief Raila Odinga lead.

They Ruto allies  see the BBI, which among others, has proposed an expanded Executive,  as an attempt to frustrate his presidential ambitions and create positions for his rivals.

Ruto on Sunday said the BBI was a campaign by an individual to change the Constitution.
