President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga-led BBI proponent group have unveiled a grand plan to carry on with the popularity of the document days after the Presidential ban on public rallies.

The two handshake principals have now turned to use the radio and other electronic media to campaign for the document in strict adherence to the Ministry of health laid down protocols.

Odinga and President Kenyatta are set to identify influential leaders and constitutional experts to appear on local and national radio stations and give presentations on the document.

“We are going to use radio and other electronic media and we shall observe with the Ministry of Health protocols,” said BBI Secretariat co-chair Junet Mohammed.

Confirming the same, BBI co-chair Dennis Waweru said that part of their strategy was to turn to electronic media to popularize and champion for the BBI, coordinated by the secretariat.

“Part of our new strategy following the ban of political rallies is to use the mass media to communicate with Kenyans,” said BBI co-chair, Dennis Waweru.  

The new development comes days after President Kenyatta banned public gatherings and political rallies for the next 30 days.

The move was a big blow to the team as they were already in top gear to seek public support on the same.

“I, hereby further direct the National Government Administration Officers (NGAO) jointly with the National Police Service and County Governments Enforcements Officers to strictly enforce this Public Order regardless of the social and political status of the convenors of the political gatherings,” read Uhuru’s statement.
