Wiper leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has called on church leaders and members of the church to join other leaders in Kenya to support the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Speaking at St.Jude Kisooni Catholic in Mumbuni, Machakos county, Kalonzo urged the church to stop opposing the BBI saying that the bill is of great help to this country.
“So now we have to raise our thoughts. I remember the church was opposing the 2010 constitution but now it has no problem with it. The bible says that we should join together. BBI’s entire purpose is to bring Kenyans together and reason together. Nobody is forcing anyone to support it.” Musyoka said.
He also stated that the BBI is not for President Uhuru or ODM leader Raila Odinga but it’s for every Kenyan and everyone should take part in it.
“Let’s have a competition of ideas because this document is a document of reforms, let’s all have discussions and reasoning together. Let us not be the only country in the world that opposes reform,” Kalonzo added.
He told the church that the BBI will allow the counties to have more development especially for the people in the grassroots.
Kalonzo has also urged the church leaders to scrutinize and refuse the money which the church receives from political leaders who are involved in corruption cases and allegations. He further urged the Kamba community to be prepared to welcome the President in his development tour to Ukambani.
