DP Ruto Claps Back At Raila Over BBI During The Mashujaa Day Celebrations

In his speech, ODM leader Raila Odinga insisted on the BBI having taken a break, and will soon be resuming on the okaying of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The former premier said the initiative would be the one to be ideal in mending the problems the country had had in every cycle of the general vote.

“Reggae has not stopped. It has taken a break and will soon resume with the president charting the course,” Raila said amid claps from the audience in the Gusii Stadium.

Ruto in his brief speech before welcoming President Uhuru challenged Raila, calling for the inclusion of all Kenyans in the whole affair.

“I have heard my friend the former Prime Minister talk about the BBI reggae, it is fine. But I guess we will have a robust national conversation that will bring everybody on board,” the DP said.

Ruto has over time proved non-commitance in the BBI since its birth in 2018 all occasioned by the Uhuru- Raila handshake.

President Kenyatta in his address intimately vouched for the document that is yet to be out.

“Our country is staring at a constitutional moment. And the national question goes back to the advent of multiparty systems. Negative politics began to dominate our national arena when the multiparty system was reintroduced,” President Kenyatta said.

“The question at hand and one requiring a constitutional consensus, is therefore how we as a country resolve the winner takes it all situation within the context of competitive politics,” Uhuru said.

“The question of us versus them must come to an end,” he added.
