A group of leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto have today flocked his Karen home for a crucial meeting to deliberate on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum.

Reports indicate that the meeting is aimed at charting the way forward regarding the BBI referendum after it emerged that different members have varying standpoints.

A section of leaders want Kenyans to vote for BBI using the clause by clause approach while others want it rejected in its entirety.


According to Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali, the BBI document has good sections that should not be thrown out.

“There are good things in the bill which we do not want to see thrown away. We can reason together on how to solve this matter. Indeed, Kenyans are not happy with additional MPs but this is a problem that will affect both Jubilee and ODM,” Washiali said during a recent interview.

Meanwhile, reports indicate that DP Ruto will address the media at around 2pm after they have concluded the meeting.
