Despite announcing support for the BBI report, Deputy President William Ruto has vowed to keep fighting for a consensus. 

According to the DP, there is a need to ensure the document accommodates divergent views from Keyan to avoid a contested referendum. 

Speaking on Saturday evening, the DP stated that BBI proponents should slow down and ensure all factors are considered before amending the Constitution through a referendum. 

He was speaking at Kimolwet in Sotik, Bomet, during the engagement party of Alfred Ngeno, the son of petroleum CAS John Mosonik, to his fiance Diana.

The DP expressed optimism a solution to the current impasse would be achieved and urged BBI opponents to be patient.

Ruto noted that he reads mischief in a rush to change the Constitution while there is major criticism from a section of politicians and Kenyans. 

Ruto said he would fight to ensure the hidden motives of BBI are exposed and defeated.

"Don't worry about BBI matters, we will deal with them until we find a solution," he said. . ("Mambo ya BBI msikuwe na wasiwasi…hiyo tutanyoroshana nao mpaka tupate suluhisho.")

He was accompanied by Cabinet Secretaries Charles Keter (Energy), Farida Karoney (Lands), Simeon Chelugui (Labour), John Munyes (Petroleum and Mining).

Also present were Bomet Governor Hillary Barchok, Senator Christopher Langat and MPs Dominic Koskei, Jackson Kiptanui, Joyce Korir, and many MCAs.

The DP said the problem ailing Kenya was not tribalism but ignorant leaders trying to divide people by stirring up tribalism.
