THE BUILDING BRIDGES INITIATIVE
LACK OF A NATIONAL ETHOS
Building Bridges' initiative is a journey to accomplish Kenya’s dreams since its independence. Kenya continues to build towards becoming a great nation that is responsive to the urgent need for fairness, inclusivity, and prosperity for all her citizens. Kenya has achieved several milestones; however, we still have deeply embedded issues driving ethnic antagonism and divisive politics. The two root causes drive the daily narratives that threaten our peace and stability and hinder Kenya from becoming a great nation.
Kenya began the journey to achieve her dreams over a century ago and we are edging closer to achieving the goal. Kenya is a country of diverse people committed to rising to greatness together, unfortunately, the ambitions set out by our foremothers and fathers have taken a negative sharp turn in the past half a century. The country has faced divisive experiences in the past with respect to the political leadership that has thrust the country into the same dangerous political dynamics that have become a recurrent theme.
The current state calls for resilience to courageously face these challenges openly and honestly. The two leaders have set out their intentions to create a united nation for all Kenyans living today and all future generations to inherit the Kenyan dream delivered by BBI.
