President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Opposition leader Raila Odinga have finally received the final report of the Building Bridges Initiative at Kisii State Lodge.
Conspicuously absent from the function was Deputy President William Ruto who has opposed the initiative arguing that it is obsessed with creating a soft landing for senior politicians.
His Twitter page showed him attending the funeral service of Huruma Ward MCA Peter Kiiru Chomba in Uasin Gishu County who died of the coronavirus.
When he received the report at the Kisii State Lodge, President Uhuru encouraged Kenyans to read it properly as it concerns their lives and those of their children, adding that it is not a document against any individual or community.
“We are not looking for the things that we disagree on. We are looking for a consensus,” he said.
