Governor Anne Waiguru now says Mt Kenya people have never been behind the BBI, an initiative promoted by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.
Speaking this morning on Citizen TV’s Day Break, the Kirinyaga boss who was among leaders from Central Kenya backing the project said despite the BBI having goodies for their region.
”Looking at the reactions, and the polls done nationally, we seem to have left the people behind in the quest to pass BBI…I would be dishonest to say that the people of Mt Kenya were behind BBI. They were not,” Governor Waiguru said on Wednesday.
The governor continued, ”We have been on the constitutional amendment journey for 2 years and then we hit a dead end. Any serious leader would then have to sit down and think where we went wrong…That is what I meant by ‘introspection’ in my Tweet. ”
”The way I’m wired is, we need to sit back and ask myself, what went wrong? Because if we were right we should have succeeded,” she continued.
“Also politically, you need to ask yourself, if you are trying to do something good for the people and the people are not moving with you is there something that you did wrong in that engagement?” Waiguru asked.
Speaking to Spice FM earlier in the week, the governor said it was too early to determine whether she will remain in Jubilee or cross over to Deputy President William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ahead of the 2022 General Election and that her decision to either stay or leave Jubilee will depend on “how the ground looks like.”
