Deputy President William Ruto now claims that Court of Appeal Judges were inspired by God to nullify BBI Bill

Deputy President William Ruto has claimed that the downfall of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill is a punishment from God to its initiators and promoters.

On Friday, August 20, 2021, a seven-judge bench of Court of Appeal declared the BBI constitutional amendment Bill after unconstitutional.

While speaking at St. Luke Wang’uru’s Anglican Church of Kenya in Kirinyaga County, the Deputy President alleged that the BBI Bill failed as a result of punishment from God to President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner, Raila Odinga who were the chief proponents of the Bill that aimed to change some clauses in the 2010 Constitution.

According to the second in command, the handshake partners were driven by their selfish interests at the expense of millions of poor Kenyan citizens.

“The downfall of BBI is a reminder for those of us in authority that we cannot use the power we have for selfish reasons to benefit those who already have positions to the disadvantage of millions of citizens who are desperate.

God is reminding us that before we think about our positions and what is important for us as leaders, we must first think about ordinary people,” Ruto said.

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader asked President Uhuru to now focus his energy on salvaging his legacy as his term enters the homestretch.

Ruto has been on record lauding the Daniel Musinga led court for hearing the “people’s voice”, and upholding the constitution he suggested had almost been hijacked by those who are “mighty”.

Ruto took to his social media page shortly after the Judgement and posted a message thanking God for the Court of Appeal’s ruling on the BBI bill.

He also claimed that the decision by the Court of Appeal Judges was a win for all Kenyans and the constitution which was facing destruction by the mighty politicians.

“God, our heavenly father has come through for Kenya and stopped the coalition of the known, the mighty and the powerful form destroying our constitution. Our God, help the alliance of the unknown, the jobless, the hustlers and the struggling farmers to now engineer our economy,” Ruto posted.
