In Summary
  • Jesse Karanja said that politicians agitating for the amendment of the current Constitution were creating fear among Kenyans by their reckless political statements.

  • He called on the youth to shun politicians criss-crossing the country politicking instead of supporting the handshake and the Big Four Agenda of President Kenyatta.

A lobby group in Nakuru Town has accused politicians of hijacking the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) for their own selfish interests.

The chairperson of People’s Power Watch lobby group Jesse Karanja said following the interference of BBI by politicians, Kenyans were now sceptical about the referendum push by BBI team.

 “As a lobby, we reject the BBI referendum call since it is hijacked by politicians who are influencing the way BBI is working,” said Mr Karanja.

He said it was evident that the BBI initiative was a politically driven initiative as it was shrouded in secrecy.


“This BBI will not address the issues affecting Kenyans because it has a hidden political agenda which aims at maintaining status quo,” said Mr Karanja.
