President Uhuru Kenyatta has gazetted names of the 14-member task force charged with spearheading implementation of the recently launched Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.
The team whose term was extended by the President on December 11, 2019, will be headed by Mohamed Yusuf Haji, according to a gazette notice dated Friday, January 10.
Other members that will serve in the taskforce are, Lawi Imathiu, Maison Leshomo, James Matundura, Rose Moseu, Agnes Kavindu Muthama and Saeed Mwaguni. The other seven are: Peter Njenga Zaccheaus Okoth (Archbishop Emeritus), Adams Oloo, Amos Wako, Florence Omose, Morompi ole Ronkei and John Seii (Rtd) Majo
The team will be required to conduct validation of the report they presented before the Head of State in November 2019. This will be done through consultations with citizens, civil society and faith-based organisations among other stakeholders.
“They shall conduct validation of the task force report on building bridges to a united Kenya through consultations with citizens, civil society, the faith-based organisations, cultural leaders, the private sector, and experts. They will 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,” read the notice signed by Head of the Public Service Joseph Kinya.
The Steering Committee is expected to submit its comprehensive advice to the government by June 30, 2020, or any other date the President may direct.
