Deputy President Willaim Ruto has delved into what might be his plans after the Building Bridges Initiative is concluded.

Speaking on Sunday in Nyandarua county, the DP noted that at the moment, the Big Four Agenda by President Uhuru Kenyatta had taken a pause and might be his focus after the opinion poll.

He noted that the Jubilee agenda is still on course and will be accelerated after the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) process.

“The Big 4 agenda has not stalled. It will be accelerated after the BBI process from June,” said Ruto.

He, however, asked ODM to stop criticizing the Government from within. Ruto challenged ODM leader Raila Odinga to decide whether he was in Government or in Opposition.

“You cannot claim to be with us (Government) while at the same time claim this Government has not done anything,” said Ruto.

The Deputy President cited infrastructure, electricity, and education programs as some of the development initiatives the Government has improved since 2013.

“The Government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta has done a lot. Kenyans are smart, no one can lie to them.”

Ruto said he was focused on ensuring development projects initiated by the Jubilee administration were fully implemented even after President Kenyatta’s retirement in 2022.

This comes after President Kenyatta dared Ruto to resign instead of criticizing the government from within.

Kenyatta said it was ridiculous “for a leader to keep employing doublespeak whenever he is addressing Kenyans.”

“On one hand he is saying the government has failed and on the other hand he is saying we as a government has done this and that development,” the president said in an apparent reference to his estranged deputy.

But Ruto has declared he will not resign, insisting that he has never undermined or disrespected the president.
