Days after meeting with a team of leaders drawn from the pastoralist communities, ODM Leader Raila Odinga has today held another meeting with leaders from Wajir South Constituency.
During their meeting, Duale and his team had listed a litany of demands that they wanted to be incorporated into the report. Their demands ranged from resource allocation to equal representation.
Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has today November 17, 2020 held a meeting with leaders and elders from Wajir South Constituency.
Sources close to the meeting have revealed that they discussed a wide range of issues that are affecting the residents of the region including development matters.
Their meeting was also attended by Suna East Member of Parliament Junet Mohamed.
Raila’s meeting comes days after another fraction of leaders from the pastoral communities held a presser in opposition of the BBI report. Speaking during the presser, former National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale outlined a raft of issues that they would like to be captured in the report. They claimed that their earlier submissions before the taskforce were not captured in the final report.
‘The BBI Report has excluded our detailed presentations to the taskforce and reduced our citizen’s gains on- equity in resource allocation, representation, gender parity, needs of the person’s living with disabilities, and protection of community land among others,’ read part of the statement by the MPs to newsrooms.
Duale’s claims were however rubbished by the lawmakers who met Raila this morning. Led by Treasury CS Ukur Yattani, the political leaders have called on Nanok and Duale to desist from mixing the BBI process with 2022 politics. The two leaders are avid supporters of DP Ruto and are viewed to be opposing the report from a compromised standpoint.
