Monday, December 12, 2022 –Opposition leader Raila Odinga has questioned President William Ruto’s change of mind on creating him an office.
Through a detailed statement of Sunday December 10, Mr. Odinga wondered how the head of State was reintroducing the same things he(Ruto) vehemently opposed a few months ago when Building Bridges Initiative BBI was introduced.
“Had Mr. Ruto been honest about the BBI proposals, everything he has suggested in his memorandum would be law today,” Mr. Odinga said.
Raila holds views that whatever Ruto wants to reintroduce is what was in the Building Bridges Initiative BBI and, therefore, is something which ought to have been dealt with long ago.
The opposition force argues that the regime must comply with the Supreme Court verdict on the poll petition.
“He must comply with the same imperatives that he demanded of the BBI process.
“All proposals for amendments of the Constitution must start with the people.
“The amendments must chiefly centre on the interests of the common mwananchi,” he added.
Odinga, therefore, promised to take-on Ruto when he returns from the United States of America USA where he is attending African Union AU international meetings.
On the same note, Siaya County boss James Orengo together with Rarieda Lawmaker Otiende Amollo cautioned MPs against going with the wishes of the executive.
Speaking at Ruma Primary School in Rarieda, the two elected leaders claimed that Ruto is a cunning politician whose intentions must be interrogated carefully especially when they appear to be very good and sumptuous.
They claimed that after introduction of the opposition leader’s office, Ruto will embark on changing the law to interfere with the president’s term limit of 10 years.
