Deputy President William Ruto has at long last explained the reason behind his uncompromising stance on the controversial building bridges initiative in an interview with Citizen TV’s journalist Joe Ageyo.
In an interview that is being conducted at his Karen residence, Ruto has compared the BBI process with the former process that was used in making the 2010 constitutional changes. He arrived at the conclusion that there is no legal framework that is supporting the current plebiscite like the case of 2010.
Adamant Ruto has reiterated that it’s never too late to do changes in the report so as to accommodate each and everybody in order to avert a contested referendum that risks polarising the country.
Ruto during the interview has also expressed hope that he will be understood with time.
Yesterday when the second-in-command summoned over 150 political leaders across the country to his Karen residence, it was anticipated that he would finally declared his position regarding BBI, something that never saw light of the day.
Ruto did not either support or dismiss but ended up saying it’s never too late to make corrections to the document. A statement that did not go well with many pro BBI politicians.
Amani National Congress Party leader Musalia Mudavadi slammed him for what he said was taking Kenyans in circles yet the process had time limits that had to be adhered to.
DP William Ruto: We are all in this process. At some point it will become clear…We do not have a legal framework that is supporting this process like we had in 2010… It is never too late to do the right thing. I believe we should have a win-win situation #DecodingRuto
