Kenya: Ruto Cautions Politicians Against Sidelining Others in Ongoing Bbi Debate

23 January 2020

Nairobi — Deputy President William Ruto has cautioned leaders against using the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to sideline other Kenyans.

He said Kenya is bigger than any politician, noting that no one would be allowed to use BBI to divide or sideline Kenyans.

Dr Ruto said Kenyans irrespective of their ethnic, religious or political affiliations have a right to give their views as far as the BBI recommendations were concerned.

Speaking during a tour of development projects in Embakasi West Constituency, Nairobi County, on Thursday, Dr Ruto said Kenya 'is for all of us' adding that everyone's views matters.

"BBI is for all Kenyans and no one should be sidelined or prevented from giving his or her views. Each Kenyan's views matter and should be respected," said Dr Ruto.

He said no one had the authority to lecture Kenyans on the nature of people to attend BBI meetings.
