Friday January 25, 2020 - Elgeyo Marakwet Governor, Alex Tolgos, has issued conditions to members of the so-called Tanga Tanga group led by Deputy President William Ruto, if they want to be part of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) meetings.
Addressing the press yesterday, Tolgos, who was handpicked by to lead the BBI initiative in Rift Valley, said that those who want to join the BBI bandwagon must, as a matter of course, respect President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga.
"Any leader who shows disrespect to President Uhuru Kenyatta and Prime Minister Raila Odinga will be cut out.”
“I do not believe that that leader should be allowed into the BBI.”
“If they are coming, we will have to gauge their behaviour and they will first have to respect those two leaders,” said Tolgos.
Tanga tanga, a group of politicians allied to the Deputy President William Ruto, has long come under blistering criticism for allegedly showing disrespect to the Head of State and his long-time political adversary, Raila Odinga.
The group has been accused of carrying out political campaigns in defiance of the President's call for politicians to focus on working for the people who elected them to office.
