Delegates began arriving at the Bomas of Kenya early on Wednesday morning for the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

However, there was a commotion as people struggled to access the main auditorium.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will launch the report that ushers a national discussion on the future of Kenya — which might shape, too, the Kenyatta succession and the 2022 politics.
