Among those who already paid him a visit at State House on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday January 27 are 10 governors who disclosed that such meetings will carry on regularly until the purpose is finally achieved.
“The president was categorical that this will not be a one-off visit but a long sustained campaign to ensure political sanity and peace.
“We will also be explaining the benefits of BBI to our people in a sustained campaign” the county head was quoted by Daily Nation.
The State House meeting will, according to our well placed sources, culminate into a mega meeting with all political leaders from the Mountain.
