A section of leaders led by Deputy President William Ruto have said the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) should not be turned into a political contest.
They said the Initiative should take everyone’s view if it is to be inclusive.
Speaking during the burial of Rael Mbeleete, mother to the former Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Kilonzo Mailu in Makindu, Makueni County on Saturday, the leaders said they were not opposed to BBI.
They noted that there was an opportunity for the Initiative to take the country to the next level of development “if it is not hijacked by politicians”.

Proper hygiene should not be taken lightly. Personal hygiene practices will surely make the difference between constant hospitalizations and being healthy. When you are leaving the house, there are some items that you must have so as to maintain the same freshness and cleanliness you leave your house with. Here is a checklist of items you should aim to remember carrying with you once you step outdoors.
There are so many uses of body wipes especially on the hot days when you need to wipe off the sweat from your brows or need to remove grime from you hands. Maybe it’s a seat in a public place that needs some wiping before you sit and ruin your white dress. Owning some wipes can also be effective when you need to wipe your hands off any dirt when you have no access to water.
A handkerchief comes in handy not only when you have the flu but also on a day to day basis. You may never know when you’ll need to sneeze or get an allergic reaction that results in a runny nose. A handkerchief will ensure that you don’t have any embarrassing moments if you need to clean your nose.
Nobody likes bad body odour. It’s not only embarrassing but can make people avoid you. Even if you leave the house fresh in the morning, as the day progresses, you’re bound to sweat and may need to add a dash of deodorant. So as to maintain the same freshness as you left the house with, carry your deodorant, perfume or body splash with you so you can spritz it on whenever you need it.
Walking around with a hand sanitizer is the safest way to keep microbes and disease-causing germs away. There could be moments in your day that you may be unable to access water and soap. Since you should clean your hands often, you can use your hand sanitizer instead and wash your hands when you get home.
Be it if you had strong smelling food at lunch or just want to avoid stale breath, breath fresheners are very handy to carry around. You can get them in the form of chewing gum, mints or sprays. No need to worry about inconveniencing any of your colleagues.
As a woman, you may have had those ‘oops moments’ where Aunty Rose comes visiting unannounced. To always be prepared for such calamities, ensure your handbag always has your sanitary product of choice.
Aside from the unanticipated period mishap, you can anticipate the vaginal discharge that flows throughout the month. To avoid any odors and the staining of your panties, always leaving the house with a pack of panty liners saves the day.
