Deputy President Takes On Nakuru Govoner.
Dec. 01, 2020
Today the deputy president Dr. William Samoei Ruto attended the funeral of Bahati member of parliament Kimani Ngunjiri's mother. Many national and local leaders attended the funeral to mourn with the family. The govoner for Nakuru county Mr. Lee Kinyanjui also was on attendance. The Nakuru govoner while addressing the mourners fired at those opposed to the Building Bridges Initiative process.
The deputy president took to the stage and fired back at the Nakuru govonor. The deputy president insisted that no one is against the BBI process and affirmed that he is for a win - win outcome.
While addressing mourners at the nation tv, Dr. Ruto hinted to his supporters that he might not be opposing the document. He also expressed hopes staing that there is still room for consultation and incorpration of other pressing concerns.
The deputy president opposed the handshake between president Kenyatta and former prime minister Honorable Raila Amolo Odinga. He went ahead and opposed the entire BBI process directly and through his allies before surprisingly making a u - turn confusing his supporters.
It yest to be observed whether the deputy president will fully support the BBI. However, many still think this is a tactical move by Dr. Ruto.
