DP Ruto’s advice to President Uhuru on BBI stalemate

Deputy President William Ruto has offered an advice to President Uhuru Kenyatta on how to go about the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill stalemate that the High Court ruled unconstitutional. 

During the National Prayer Breakfast that was held at Parliament Buildings on Thursday, May 27, 2021, Ruto urged President Uhuru to reach out to him and other leaders to discuss the way forward. 

While advising the President, Ruto quoted a bible verse that was read by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga way back in 2018 at a similar event. 

“So much happened but as we stand today, the Tanga Tanga tours are over and the reggae has also stopped. I think we have to listen and do something together. 

“Former Prime Minister (Raila Odinga) said something profound (in 2018). In fact, in a very uncharacteristic manner, he gave us a verse, Isaiah 1:18 that says ‘come let us reason together’. Maybe God is speaking to us again, telling us to reason together,” Ruto stated. 

The second in command also took a swipe at National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi’s coronation by elders while analysing the events that have occurred since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out in March, 2020. 

“Even in the midst of this pandemic, we have had positive things; the President launched the Lamu Port, we got our first female Chief Justice (Martha Koome) and also our speaker (Muturi) got an appointment with the elders,” DP Ruto stated.
