Why BBI report will be handed over at the historic Harambee House


Weekly Citizen has information of plans to unveil much awaited Building Bridges Initiative at Harambee House and not Sate House.

Harambee House, considered to be the center of power previously hosted significant events including the perceived golden handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition chief Raila Odinga.

On March 9, 2018 the world was shocked when the two leaders emerged together from the terraces of the Harambee House, to address the nation after the signing of the peace agreement.

Similarly, the late chief mediator Koffi Annan used the same platform during the mediation talks between retired President Mwai Kibaki and Raila following the 2007-08 post-election crisis.

Understandably, a section of power players within the presidency were pushing for the report to be received at the State House.

It’s also coming out that Uhuru Park is likely to host events that would follow the release of the BBI report as far as drumming up support for the idea is concerned.

Earlier your favorite Weekly Citizen had accurately reported that the release of the highly contentious BBI report would only be done after the concluded Kibra by-election which has been described by President Uhuru as free, fair and peaceful.
