Politicians from the Rift Valley region have challenged dare Deputy President William Ruto to come out of the government and lead the anti-BBI campaigns instead of sabotaging President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking in Bomet town, the leaders asked the DP to stop working against the President as he has an option of quitting his position and spearhead campaigns against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) bill.
“We are asking Ruto to walk out of the government to lead anti-BBI campaigns instead of sabotaging the president. He is derailing the BBI process,” KANU Secretary General Nick Salat.
Baringo County Senator pointed out that those opposed to the new constitutional process do not have the interests of Kenyans at heart.
He added that the proposed amendments were good and they will enhance the fabric holding the Kenyan society together.
Chama Cha Mashinani leader Isaac Ruto explained that if the BBI proposals were to pass, the chaos that has always been witnessed after every election would be something of the past.
He added that no one wins when there is chaos in any society and by the time temperatures cool down, the socio-economic fabric holding the society together would have suffered a lot.
He pointed out that the handshake is good for the country.
Deputy President William Ruto has for a long time expressed his dislike for the amendments stating that they do not cover every Kenyan.
Recently it seemed as if he had loosened his position against the BBI document but later stated that he remains against it.
On Friday 4 Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader urged more Kenyans to read and understand the BBI proposals as he asked leaders to stop manipulating Kenyans into voting against the proposed amendments.
The former Prime Minister also expressed confidence after over 5 million Kenyans appended their signatures endorsing the BBI process.
He explained that since the signature collection drive was over, the team would now let the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to verify the exercise.
