Speaking during a presser in Nairobi today, the women led by Nairobi County finalist Betty Adera have thrown their weight behind the report saying it is one of a kind that if implemented to the latter would go a long way .
”We Are here to throw our weight behind the BBI report and process. We thank the taskforce and Kenyans at large for we now have a platform to converse about things that divide us and at the same time find solutions to them. We the Miss President participants will use our platforms to sentize Kenyans to go through the report before giving feedback,” said Betty Adera
The women drawn from all counties have furthermore urged Kenyans including politicians not to politicise the report but instead argue it out based on issues that affect the nation.
”Let’s not politicise this report as has been the tendency with other national agendas. If honoured and not politicised, this report can go along way in curing a lot of the issues we face as a nation.” Explained Shamim Mayah, a miss president finalist from Tana River county.
