Uhuru Warns Shallow State Against Scuttling the BBI Referendum

The government has come out guns blazing against some shallow state operatives who have expressed opposition to the revered BBI report. 

Speaking while collecting signatures from Internally Displaced Persons due to conflicts and lack of food in West Pokot County, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that the Building Bridges Initiative needs to be fast tracked so that it can solve all the problems that leaders have failed to solve since 1963. He said that the shallow state elements opposing the document would be dealt with in a ‘government manner.’

Without mentioning names, the government warned the likes of Kivutha Kibwana, Martha Karua, Boniface Mwangi and others against speaking against the will of the people by educating the masses on the impact of the BBI. The sentiments were echoed by Raila Odinga and other BBI apologists who promised that even though there is no money for PPEs, there will be enough money for the referendum.

“They are telling people that we do not care about them, yet they also do not care. Why would our lack of care bother them? Why can’t they do their caring or lack of it privately? Must they spoil it for everyone?”
