“Saa zile tunaongea mambo ya prime minister, lazima tuongee mambo ya boda boda, kazi ni kazi. (While talking about the office of the Prime Minister, it is a must that we also talk about boda boda operators, both are jobs that need to be respected) If they are serious about having a dialogue on the BBI then I am ready” Asserted DP Ruto.
Ruto warned against the use of any underhand means to push the report, stating that “threats and blackmail will not be entertained”.
If you find a country where a wheelbarrow becomes part of national conversation, then you know there is a serious issue. I am not a mad man nor a drunkard. There is an issue that needs to be addressed, we can no longer live in denial. We need to talk, this must be addressed,” added Ruto.
“Naskia wako na shida na mimi kupeana wheelbarrows na piki piki, Kichwa yao iko sawa kweli?” questioned DP Ruto.
