Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, on Tuesday, January 14, urged her supporters to boycott the public discussions of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
In an angry video rant posted on her social media account, the fiery lawmaker urged Malindi residents not to discuss the proposed report in the wake of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cabinet shuffle that saw the sacking of Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri.
Jumwa justified her call to action by claiming that the team steering the BBI discourse had purposely excluded a section of Kenyans to which she belonged and as such, she urged, it was time to detach from the BBI process.
“I am urging Coast residents, especially the Mijikenda, that we should not talk about BBI. We have been shown that it is not about us. So why should we discuss it in the first place?
In his presser, Kiunjuri, who was replaced by Trade CS Peter Munya,claimed that his sacking was not as a surprise given what he described as changing political winds in the country.
“I am not lacking in means. I know the President took his actions and this must have its own consequences.
