William Ruto says he loves this country so much that he can’t be part of the BBI ‘war’
Deputy President William Ruto promised unwavering support for Kenya. He swore never to be apart of any kind of war in the region.
The opinions of the DP came about as a result of resistance changes rift among supporters and opponents of the BBI report.
In a tweet, the DP said that it was possible for pro-BBI and anti-BBI groups to enter a truce. And therefore, allow the government to hold a non-contested vote.
“I love this country enough never to be part of any ‘war’. Not when there is a real possibility for a win-win consensus beckoning. An ‘us vs them ‘yes/no’ contest that will lead to a lose-lose outcome is unnecessary and unwarranted. A non-contested referendum is possible. Inawezekana (It’s possible), ” said Ruto.
‘No campaign’ leader
During its launch in Bomas, Kenya, Ruto clearly and openly punched holes in a percentage of the initiatives included in the report.
His decision to disqualify the proposal in the existence of President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga, the main advocates, was seen as a clear directive of his capability to promote a ‘No Campaign’ during the referendum. https://www.vdjjones.co.ke/blog/veteran-politician-martha-karua-blocks-a-blogger-who-questioned-her-moral-authority-on-election-integrity/
