DP Ruto: It’s a contradiction to want to amend the Constitution while refusing to amend a mere report

Deputy President William Ruto has finally responded to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Leader Raila Odinga’s ultimatum over the BBI report.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga met with Members of Parliament in Naivasha and ruled out any changes or further talk on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report ahead of the referendum as was fronted by DP Ruto.

DP Ruto has urged leaders supporting the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report to accommodate everyone’s views and build a consensus.

Though a statement might have been directed to Raila, the DP Ruto wondered why those pushing for the report wanted to amend the constitution but are not willing to amend the BBI report itself.

The second in command stated that the pastoralist, the church, women, Senate and other stakeholders wanted consensus on the BBI report.

“Pastoralist (PPG), the church (NCCK), women, Senate and other stakeholders want consensus on the BBI. It’s a contradiction to want to amend the Constitution while refusing to amend a mere report,” Ruto tweeted.

Ruto also dismissed those pretending to be building bridges while locking out others.

“It’s defeatist to build walls to shut others out while purporting to build bridges,” he added.

This comes after President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga had met with kieleweke Members of Parliament in Naivasha and ruled out any form of further talks or amendments in the BBI report.  

In a statement read by Siaya Senator James Orengo, participants at the meeting maintained that the document was developed with the full participation of all, almost ruling out any changes or further talk on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report ahead of the referendum as was fronted by DP Ruto.
