The lower county assemblies of Machakos, Kitui and Makueni have come together to support the Building Bridges Initiative.
In a press statement on Monday, they said they have unanimously agreed to strongly support the BBI and urged all leaders from Ukambani to preach unity.
“We believe the BBI provides the best roadmap for the development and progress of not only Ukambani but also for the whole of Kenya,” they said.
Led by Kitui assembly Speaker Peter Kilonzo, the MCAs said they support the BBI because it provides for the equitable allocation of national resources and inclusivity in political and socio-economic spheres.
“For a long time, Ukambani has lagged in economic development, mainly as a result of the skewed allocation of resources that has favoured regions with high agricultural potential,” they said in a press conference in Machakos on Monday.
