Details have now emerged of how Deputy President William Ruto’s Tanga Tanga allied MPs were blocked from accessing Bomas of Kenya during the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Speaking to KTN while supporting members of his faction in the morning, Jubilee party deputy secretary-general Caleb Kositany, divulged that they were by-passed by the organizers of the event and never got any invitation for the event.
“I did not receive an invitation to Bomas of Kenya,” he said. He then proceeded to exude confidence that DP Ruto’s address at the Bomas of Kenya conference aired all their concerns, hence, they were satisfied even after watching the events pan from the sidelines.
“We were represented by the deputy president. The MPs were to receive invites from the office of the Leader of Majority Amos Kimunya but only some selected few members got the invitation,” said Kositany.
He went ahead to say that, it was only Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria who attended the event among the DP Ruto allies without any Invitation while questioning the caliber of the event attendees.
He said, “It raises a lot of concern on the caliber of those who were invited for the event. It seems they were briefed on what to do.”
This came after DP had raised a number of concerns amid jeers during his speech in the event a clear indication that he was of a dissenting opinion.
Kositany also concurred with the DP’s sentiments that the document was hurriedly prepared with a view of rewarding a few people with seats in the executive.
“The BBI was hurriedly made to create positions and that is what it did…it was a premeditated initiative to create positions,” he told KTN News on Tuesday morning.
