No Ruto No BBI! Uhuru And Raila In Dilemma After Jubilee Leaders Declared Stand

Must read




A section of Rift Valley leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto have vowed to oppose the oncoming Building Bridges Initiative To A Better Kenya (BBI) report. The leaders say that the country is not yet ready for such a report, given the rigorous referendum debate that is likely to come out of it. Led by Nakuru senator Susan Kihika and Soy Member of Parliament Caleb Kositany, the leaders vowed to shoot down the BBI report proposals at the plenary given that they are all ill timed and unnecessary. Senator Kihika termed the calls for a referendum as too expensive for a country currently grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mp Kositany, the de facto spokesperson of Deputy president William Ruto, noted that as leaders they would not support any proposals that were not beneficial to the ordinary Mwanachi. A statement that was reiterated by Kihika, adding that the first beneficiary should be Wanjiku and not any other. She found a problem with the idea of expanding the country’s current Executive setup noting that it would be too costly for the common mwananchi to sustain. That if the BBI is meant to have additional seats for political leaders then they would not hesitate to have it dropped forthwith.

Kositany noted that contrary to the common belief, DP Ruto has the numbers in both houses of parliament to have the BBI report rejected. Adding that not even the ongoing political purge within Jubilee party would deter their members from doing what they felt was right. And with the BBI steering committee chaired by senator Yusuf Hajji having completed its term on June 30 2020, the BBI report has been finalized and now only awaits its handing over to the two handshake principals. Already the political drumbeats surrounding the same are already simmering in the background, with politicians allied to both president Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga upbeat about the reports proposals.

The seemingly rejection of the BBI by leaders allied to Dp Ruto has been expected given his fierce opposition to the handshake deal. The handshake between President Kenyatta and Odinga only slept doom for the  country’s second in command. He has since been sidelined from a government he helped create, with Ruto now taking a forceful back seat in the running of the government. Not even does he attend anymore cabinet meetings, national security council briefings, and key state meetings. His allies have also been kicked out from influential positions in government with President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga now in firm control of state affairs.
