Title deeds crisis tops BBI agenda at Coast

Deputy President William Ruto dances with mama Agnes Nduku during a church service at St Christopher Catholic Parish in Machakos County on January 19, 2020. He is against the BBI campaigns.

A day after being on the receiving end during the Building Bridges Initiative rally in Kakamega that ended up as a show of might by President Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga, Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday fought back, dismissing the meeting as mere ”drama”.

Cautioning against being targeted for attack, Mr Ruto wondered why his name was on the lips of nearly every speaker at the rally that was also attended by Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang’ula.

Mr Ruto dismissed the meetings that have been held in Kisii and Kakamega as ”drama” and called for an inclusive programme to collect views from citizens in every sub-county.

Speaking at St Christopher Catholic Church in Kyumvi, Machakos County, the DP urged the BBI team to come up with sub-county programmes where Kenyans can give views on where the country is going.

“I urge leaders who are chest-thumping, promoting divisive politics and the hullabaloo surrounding BBI to form a separate forum since calling Ruto names and mentioning Sugoi will not be included in the report,” Mr Ruto said.
