“Reggae Will stop” Ruto vows to stop BBI over incitement

Deputy President William Ruto has hit on Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leaders supporting the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), saying that they are using the rallies to spread hate and ethnic profiling.

Addressing congregants at Full Gospel Church in Gatunduri, Embu County yesterday, Ruto said that those saying that ‘nobody can stop reggae’ should wait and see him stop it.

“This story we are being told about nobody can stop reggae, if reggae is what we are seeing, the ethnicity that is being propagated on BBI rallies and the ethnic profiling of communities, and the hate and campaign of one tribe against the other. If that is the reggae they are referring to, my friend reggae will stop. We will stop reggae!” He said.

Ruto claimed that BBI supporters are preaching negative ethnicity and hatred, claiming that for Kenyans to seek political positions and work in specific areas, they must ask their blessings.

“They are even profiling some communities. This is intolerable.” Ruto said.

The deputy president said that Kenya is a God-fearing country and is not ready for any bloodshed and directed the rallies to stop.

“As the Deputy President, I will not let anyone cause chaos at the expense of Kenyans.” He added.

Ruto urged Kenyans to reject the ‘political conmen’ whenever they incite them against each other, pointing that they are just self-centered individuals with selfish interests.

He told the leaders, whom he did not name that Kenya is not ready to be plunged into political turmoil by self- centered people who don’t mean well for Kenyans.

“When the leaders spoke at Narok’s BBI campaign, they only spoke of dividing Kenyans. As a country, this is not what we want.” Ruto said.

According to Dr. Ruto, the Building Bridges Initiative is about bringing Kenyans together regardless of their tribes and political status and not dividing them as the leaders have been doing in their rallies.

He cited the violence that was witnessed in Kitui rally and said that every person has a right to be heard as the initiative concerns all Kenyans.

Ruto added that ODM party leader Raila Odinga is using BBI to criticize and block church donations he has been doing.

“They are planning to make sure no more contributions towards church developments. They will not thrive. This country does not belong to Raila.” He shot.

Raila said that leaders cannot take money acquired in corrupt and dubious ways to churches as donations.

The ODM leaders also told those opposing the initiative to battle with his team at the polls.

“If you don’t want what we are doing, let’s meet at the ballot,” Raila said.

He noted that BBI is about dealing with corruption, poverty, illiteracy, and disease, which have persisted since independence.

Last week Raila said, “We have to end corruption where individuals turn into overnight billionaires with dubious sources of income.”
