- A section Jubilee Party leaders believe that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) will be the final straw in the “sour” relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto.
This is even as Ruto is vehemently opposed to BBI which has already finished collecting views from Kenyans and has retreated to write a report on whether or not we would have a referendum.
Led by Nyeri Town MP, Ngunjiri Wambugu, and his Gatanga counterpart, Nduati Ngugi, the Jubilee politicians criticized Dr Ruto and his allies for dismissing the 12-member task force
According to them, President Kenyatta would rather cut links with Dr Ruto and back the BBI task force that has brought peace to Kenya since his handshake with Raila.
The Jubilee leaders have warned Ruto to stop undermining the Head of State through anti-BBI remarks because Uhuru will sacrifice him for BBI if need be.
On August 10th, the DP tweeted:
“The Jubilee administration will not be distracted from delivering on our manifesto and HE’s Big Four plan by those engaged in the raging debate on Punguza Mizigo, BBI or 2022.”
“They should be objective, truthful, and conduct an honest conversation that is in the best interest of all of us.”
But in a rejoinder, Wambugu said Ruto cannot purport to speak on behalf of the Jubilee administration, which endorsed the BBI to collect views on behalf of Kenyans.
