Amid rising public outcry over the punitive Finance Act 2018, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga have met at State House to discuss the Building Bridges Initiative.
The two leaders held a discussion with the team appointed to lead the initiate and dicussed their progressions and the challenges they have faced.
While delivering a speech at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom (UK) on Tuesday, May 15, Raila said the initiative is set to focus on tackling corruption, marginalisation, divisive elections, insecurity and lack of national ethos.
He explained that creating a stable nation was the primary purpose of the Building Bridges Initiative which offered an opportunity for a frank discussion about the questions which had bedeviled Kenya for decades.
The meeting came hours after the president signed the Finance Bill 2018 into law which has received a lot of criticism from the public.
While signing the bill, Uhuru assured Kenyans their taxes will be spent effectively without any wastage and corruption incidents.
