Kajiado Central Member of Parliament Elijah Memusi has lauded President Uhuru Kenyatta, Baringo County Senator Gideon Moi, and Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga for being patient with Deputy President William Ruto during the process of amending the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI report.
Speaking in Kilgoris Town in Narok County where the Baringo County Senator launched Kanu’s drive to collect signatures for the BBI, the MP suggested that William Ruto had been playing with their minds.
He mentioned that the DP first raised concerns over the appointment of IEBC commissioners only to later shift his concerns to the National Police and later the pastoralists’ community.
“We have seen him [DP Ruto] opposing BBIand I thank you, Senator Gideon Moi, President Uhuru Kenyatta, and Raila Odinga because you have been very patient with him. BBI has addressed all the issues raised by everyone, so if DP Ruto is looking for consensus, BBI has taken into consideration the views expressed by every Kenyan.”
“Senator Moi, I remember recently as you spoke in Kajiado you noted that there is no perfect document and I agree, only the Bible and the Holy Koran can be said to be perfect,” Memusi said.
Moi on his part while drumming up the BBI signature collection said that Constitutional changes are done all over the world in a bid to suit the interests of the people.
He added that a lot of public money has been stolen in the past and the BBI document covers how to deal with the looters and that was one of the reason why they were supporting the document.
“The world over, changes are made on the constitution to make it adapt to the changing aspirations of the people and Kenya is no exception,” he said.
Deputy President skipped the launch of the signature collection event at the KICC this week, stating that there was still a chance of real chance at a consensus for a non-divisive referendum.
