(KDRTV)- The call for a powerful Prime minister post dominates the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally in Mombasa at Mama Ngina Waterfront
The coastal region leaders have tendered their lists of recommendations in the ongoing BBI forum in the region
The recommendations were initiated by delegates who met at Wild Waters in Mombasa
The rally kicked off with a call for an expanded executive and a powerful Prime Minister post aided by two deputies
If the recommendations will be adopted the model of governance will include a president with a deputy with all positions of power being shared equally among regions
The proposition also called for creation to regions in coast: an upper region and lower region
The upper region should include Kilifi, Lamu and Tana River counties while the lower region should be composed of Kwale, Mombasa and Taita Taveta counties
The regions with be regulated by a federal government which is critically calling for a second-tier of devolution
The model should include the president heading the national government, regional governors heading the regions and governors heading the counties.
The coastal recommendations also hailed the implementations of the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) report which points out at historical injustices.
They also recommended the implementation of the Ndugu report which id Kenya`s most authoritative document on land matters
