BBI confirms Uhuru has failed, in other countries he would be impeached - Gladys Shollei
Nov. 28, 2019
The recently launched Building Bridges Initiative could have paved way for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s impeachment if Kenya was another country, Uasin Gishu Woman Representative Gladys Boss Shollei has claimed.
The Jubilee lawmaker said the recommendations made by the highly anticipated report were similar to those in the party’s manifesto which the head of state has failed to implement.
The former chief registrar of the Judiciary was speaking in the morning of Thursday, November 28, on Citizen TV day break show.
“If I will have to read the BBI report and compare it with the Jubilee manifesto, basically is it saying he (Uhuru) has failed. If anybody was to take this document to any other country, the president could have been impeached,” the TangaTanga allied MP said.
The legislator rated Uhuru as a poor performer who had to form a 14-member task-force to curb his shortcomings.
“The president has commissioned a report which says his government has failed – The BBI report has appraised and given him a failure rate,” she added.
Before the launch of the report, the lawmaker was a popular critic of the handshake between Uhuru and opposition leader Raila Odinga under the Inua Mama political group which is allied to Deputy President William Ruto .
In August 2019, at a fundraiser in Kesses constituency, Uasin Gishu, Shollei rubbished BBI noting its proponents were taking Kenyans for a ride.
"Those people who are undertaking BBI process are taking Kenya for a ride and we are not fools. The Kenyan constitution-making process in 2010 was the most consultative in the entire world. You cannot go around the country collecting views which can be retrieved from audio tapes recorded in 2010. We will rather Punguza Mizigo because it resonates well with Kenyans," she said.
