President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed a 14-member committee that is expected to oversee implementation of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

Activist Okiya Omtatah in a rejoinder has filed a petition in court seeking to stop President Kenyatta from extending the mandate of the 14-member team, known as the “Steering Committee on the Implementation of the Building Bridges to a United Kenya Taskforce Report.”

The committee will be required to conduct a validation of the BBI report through consultations with citizens, civil society, the faith-based organizations, cultural leaders, the private sector, and experts.

A gazette notice dated January 10, 2020 states that it is notified for the general information of the public that His Excellency Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces, has appointed the Steering Committee on the Implementation of the Building Bridges to a United Kenya Taskforce Report:

The steering committee is expected to come up with proposals that ought to be made to pave the way for the implementation of the BBI report.

“The Terms of Reference of the Steering Committee shall be to: propose administrative, policy, statutory or constitutional changes that may be necessary for the implementation of the recommendations contained in the Task Force Report, taking into account any relevant contributions made during the validation period,” adds the Gazette notice.
