ODM leader Raila Odinga and the Building Bridges task force on Friday paid a courtesy call on President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi.

The 14-member team updated Uhuru and Raila on the progress it has made towards their mandate of charting the path to lasting peace and unity in Kenya.

The task force was gazetted on May 31, a move that gives their recommendations a legal impetus. The team is expected to finish the task within a year.

The committee is led by Amb Martin Kimani and lawyer Paul Mwangi as joint secretaries.

Adams Oloo, Agnes Kavindu, Senator Amos Wako, Florence Omose, Prof Saeed Mwanguni , James Matundura, Major (rtd) John Seii, and Bishop Lawi Imathiu are members.

Others in the team include Maison Leshomo, Senator Mohamed Yusuf Haji, Morompi ole Ronkai, Bishop Peter Njenga, Rose Moseu, and Archbishop Zecheus Okoth.

Part of their mandate was to establish a sustainable mechanism of addressing the perennial challenge of ethnic antagonism and competition.

They are also to dissect matters to do with lack of national ethos, inclusivity, devolution, safety and security, and corruption.

The team has so far asked the public for practical views on how to tame corruption.
