Leaders from Mandera have unanimously agreed to support the Building Bridges (BBI) report.
The leaders led by Mandera Governor Ali Roba said the report has included five of the demands from 15 Asal counties.
Roba noted not all of the demands from the region would have been included and hailed the BBI steering committee for accommodating the report.
Mandera East MP Omar Sala supported the report as four of the area’s demands have been met.
Suna East MP Junet Mohamed said the BBI train has gained momentum and will never be stopped.
Junet said those opposing the report have been coming with different demands every day and said the report will stop at nothing but the referendum. He asked the opposition to present their grievances at the ballot box.
According to Junet the report has received the over five million signatures needed for a referendum.
