Kenya: Odinga Says Reggae is Back and Unstoppable! BBI Rallies Lined Up

20 October 2020

KISII, Kenya 0CT 20 - Opposition chief Raila Odinga has reignited the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) conversation, declaring "Reggae is Back".

Odinga, who spoke in Kisii on Tuesday during the Mashujaa Day celebrations, urged Kenyans to prepare for countrywide rallies lined up after the heroes celebrations.

"For 56 years we have followed one direction but we are not seeing any results... so we need to look at what else is there that is missing, so that the project Kenyan can move forward as envisioned by our founding fathers of our nation," he said.

"It is time to change how we do things," Odinga said, "we had posed Reggae and the BBI conversation but we are now back."

He hinted at rallies lined up in Kakamega, Mombasa, Kitui, Garissa among others to popularise the document once it is released, setting the stage for an eventual referendum to change the Constitution.

Deputy President William Ruto, who also spoke at the celebrations, called for a national conversation on BBI that will involve all.

"My friend the former Prime Minister has told us about the Reggae, which is fine. But I guess we will have a robust national conversation that will bring everybody on board," the DP said.
