The contents of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report are likely to shape the political landscape in Deputy President William Ruto’s Rift Valley backyard.
A section of Jubilee leaders from the region Thursday said that they will rally behind the direction the DP will take after the BBI report is made public. The leaders insist that the BBI is aimed at scuttling Dr Ruto’s presidential ambitions.
“Remarks by ODM leader Raila Odinga targeted at Dr Ruto is a clear indication that BBI is not in good faith,” Bomet Senator Dr Christopher Lang’at told the Nation.
“The handshake was supposed to unite all of us including the Deputy President but this is not the case as other leaders have been sidelined,” added Senator Lang’at.
Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei said they were waiting for the release of the BBI report, adding that they will only support if it will better the lives of Kenyans.
“If BBI is indeed a good thing for Kenya, Kenyans should be given time to scrutinise it but it should not be rammed down their throats. If it will not be inclusive, it will not go anywhere,” said Senator Cherargei.
