Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka has asked Kenyans to fully support the Building Bridges Initiative report; saying presents a chance to foster peace in the country.
Mr Musyoka spoke after opening Wiper Party office in Nyahururu Town said BBI will bring to an end a divisive country and allow its citizens to exist in harmony.
The Wiper leader recounted how General Elections in Kenya has been characterized by cycles of violence and expressed optimism that the BBI report would help bring the chaos to an end.
