Deputy President William Ruto has urged Kenyans to avoid being divided by the Building Bridges Initiative as well as the Punguza Mizigo factions that are pushing for constitutional amendments. Speaking during the burial of former KCC board chairman Kibiwot Koross in Cherangany constituency, Trans Nzoia County, DP Ruto urged Kenyans to wait and examine the final proposals themselves before choosing which way to go. “Am urging you wananchi not to be divided by
tribal politics, political party inclinations or people who want to sell their agenda using BBI or Punguza Mizigo,” he said “Kenyans are not fools and will be given time to peruse the two documents and make informed
decisions without being divided.”
The Deputy President said Jubilee party will hold its
elections next year before March as a way of strategizing its base, and ensuring that all Kenyans have a say in the party as opposed to what he termed as the Nairobi people who are claiming to be party stalwarts.
Some of the leaders who accompanied the DP to the function-Soy MP Caleb Kositany and Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi-faulted area MP Joshua Kutuny for failing to show up at the function. They said Kutuny has lost focus and is busy digging his political grave, something which will haunt him. They urged Cherangany residents to send him home come the 2022 general elections.
