Monday January 27, 2020 – Former Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto, has shocked the nation after he vowed never to attend any BBI meetings.
Speaking at Taach FM on Monday morning, Isaac Ruto said the BBI rallies are marred with political intolerance as was witnessed in Mombasa on Saturday.
He said that although he is fully behind the report, he's not happy with the intolerance between Raila’s allies and William Ruto's.
"I will not attend those rallies, of the 3 that has happened it's more of political sideshows than the intended course, the timing of this report is not good, if it comes concurrently with the General Elections, it will lose meaning on the way since some will be blanketed by politics," Ruto said.
Nonetheless, Isaac said that he is fully behind the BBI report because most of its proposals are what he has been championing for through his Chama Cha Mashinani party.
He noted that although he wasn't attending the national rallies, he was organizing meetings with local leaders and is sensitizing people around the county on the BBI report’s contents.
"I was in Kapkoros on Saturday, and in Bomet central yesterday sensitizing the people of Bomet on what the report entails and encouraging them to come out and present their ideas as well, I just don't agree with how the rallies are ran," he said.
