Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana has rubbished out sentiments by BBI opposers saying they were present during Bomas Draft.
“Those who say having Prime minister and his deputy is setting positions for other leaders are wrong as they were present during Bomas Draft. Deputy President, William Ruto participated in writing the draft, I wonder why he is making noise”, said Kibwana.
He added that during the grand coalition Raila Odinga, Musalia Mudavadi, William Ruto, Mwai Kibaki among other leaders were in government and implemented what was in Bomas Draft and they all agreed.
“The question begs why are they now changing their decisions whereas they supported the move in 2007.” He added.
In January, Former Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama asked the Kamba Community to oppose the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report. He said that there are some amendments that were being done to the BBI report so as to give positions to a few leaders noting that the Kamba community will not benefit from that and hence they should oppose the report.
The governor was speaking in Kasikeu, Kilome constituency where they issued 3,178 title deeds.
Kibwana also urged residents to use alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in solving land issues as they were to issue 4,800 title deeds in the area.
His sediments were echoed by Makueni County Commissioner Mohamed Maalim and the area MCA Julius Tankai where the duo called upon residents to use alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to sort out their land issues without necessarily going to the courts every time there are disputes.
