President Uhuru Kenyatta has said he does not intend to extend his stay in office beyond 2022.
In a rebuttal directed at critics of of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), the president said the initiative was meant to unite Kenyans and not create positions for politicians.
He further said his association with Opposition leader Raila Odinga was meant to unite Kenyans and not to create positions as it had been insinuated by opponents of BBI.
“The BBI will help us to work better, My brother Raila Odinga and I will lead Kenyans through that path of unity, the BBI is not meant to create position for me, already I am tired,”
” The initiative aims to ensure that Kenyans do not shed blood during elections, let nobody lie to you,” he said.
Uhuru was speaking when he stopped to address wananchi along Mombasa Road after he commissioned Nairobi expressway on Wednesday, October 16.
The 27 km expressway is expected to cost 50 billion.
The critics of BBI have maintained that it’s a ploy to create political seats for Uhuru, ODM leader Raila Odinga and their cronies.
