The Building Bridges Initiative has been given until October 23, 2019 to submit a comprehensive report to President Uhuru Kenyatta and special AU envoy Raila Odinga.

The committee that was formed soon after the March 9, 2018 handshake between the two leaders had been given one term which would end in May 2019.

President Kenyatta, however, extended the initiative's tenure by five months to allow the committee to complete its mandate.

The task-force is chaired by Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji, who is deputized by University of Nairobi lecturer Adams Oloo.

The task-force has been going round counties gathering views on policy and administrative reform proposals along with its implementation.

According to a schedule released by the committee, it will be visiting Migori, Homa Bay, Kisii and Nyamira counties this week.

Uasin Gishu, Turkana, Nandi and Elgeyo Marakwet will interact with the task-force on April 9, 10, 11 and 12 respectively.

The public hearing are expected to continue through the Month of May with the final hearings set for Nairobi County on June 18 and 19.

Some politicians opposed to a Constitutional referendum have vocalized their dissenting view of the work being done by the task-force even as former Prime Minister Odinga advocates for the referendum.
