Deputy President William Ruto has warned both President Uhuru Kenyatta and his new found ally Raila Odinga that they risk losing their Building Bridges Initiative BBI course if they will not listen to everyone.
Addressing at Gusii stadium during the Mashujaa Day celebrations held on Tuesday October 20th, DP Ruto asked the Handshake partners to be cautious on how they handle the entire process which will require everyone on board or risk massive rejection.
He said dialogue will be important to accommodate divergent issues before making any final concussion.
“Former Prime Minister has talked about reggae. That is fine. But I guess we will have a robust national conversation that will bring everybody on board,” Mr. Ruto said.
Ruto was simply responding to Odinga’s clarion call for Kenyans top prepare for constitutional changes soon.
The former Prime Minister said their Building Bridges Intuitive BBI rallies would be resuming in few days to come.
He added that their ‘train’ was unstoppable and that everyone with sound mind must prepare to join them for the purposes of unity.
His sentiments were echoed by President Uhru Kenyatta who also said the changes in law were quite inevitable warning those who don’t see the need of BBI that constitutional rigidity cannot be the solution Kenya wanted.
Ruto, all along, has been expressing his reservations on the whole BBI aim which he thinks is not necessary at this time when many Kenyans are suffering in poverty and hopelessness.
And in his 7 minute long Mashujaa Day speech, he appeared to defend the poor persons in the country whom he said needed jobs and money in their pockets rather than ‘BBI empty talks’.
“Millions of Kenyans in towns and cities who wake up early and sleep late, in offices in factories, in farms and in all other places, working hard for our nation diligently, with commitment, determination, with passion and with integrity to make meaning of our independence and to continue with the journey of making our nation free. To them too, we celebrate them as our Mashujaas because of what they do on a daily basis,” Ruto explained.
The DP, unlike Uhuru and Odinga, refused to speak about the founding fathers and other heroes but instead focused his lines on the Hustlers Nation which he wants to rely on for his 2022 presidential fight.
