A rowdy crowd on Saturday surprised Deputy President William Ruto where they were chanting BBI Tosha while in Isiolo town
The DP was struggling to address the youth who continually chanted BBI Tosha.
The youths were seen carrying placards and tree branches as they chanted ‘BBI Tosha,” as was seen in a video clip.
“Hatuko pamoja” a voice is heard saying, as the DP, who can hardly be heard, is seen struggling to address the crowd.
This occurred at the Ngeremara Township where he was on a meet the people tour in the town after he successfully led a fundraiser for churches in the outskirts of the town.
Ruto was accompanied by a host of tangatanga MPs led by Isiolo woman representative Rehema Jaldesa. Other politicians were nominated Senator Millicent Omanga and Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa.
Adamantly, Ruto said he will not resign despite President Uhuru Kenyatta asking him to quit if he felt the government that he is ironically in as not doing enough to deliver services.
Despite having been stripped of his duties as he has spoken in his respect and disrepute of the President, Ruto said he will instead continue supporting the President to roll out Jubilee administration’s programmes.
While reiterating his commitment and loyalty to his boss and Jubilee Party, Ruto said he will respect the President.
He said that despite claims of rebellion against him, he has been and will continue to respect the President.
“Uhuru is the boss in this government. I have never acted in contrast to what he has directed me to do. I have done all that he has instructed me to do,” Ruto said.
The DP denied claims of undermining the President, saying Uhuru is the final decision maker in the Jubilee administration.
“You all know I am a very respectful person. The President and I campaigned as a team and we formed the Jubilee government. I respect the President and he is the one who makes the final decision in this government,” Ruto said.
He added, “I have never contradicted the President because of respect I have for him. Even though the work I was supposed to be doing as the Deputy President is being done by others, I have respected the President on that decision because I want the unity of the country.”
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday challenged Ruto to resign as he was campaigning against development projects being undertaken by the same government he is in.
