  • DP Willaim Ruto spoke candidly on whether he will lead a No Campaign against the BBI.

Deputy President William Ruto says he will not lead a campaign against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) stating that he will respect the will of Kenyans.

The Deputy President said he has no problem with either the current Constitution or the one after amendments under the BBI.

Though the DP has poked holes in the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), he has refused to oppose it outright even as some of his allies push him to do it.

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi said they don’t want to be drawn into a competition that will result in divisions ahead of the 2022 General Election.

Reports by a local daily indicated that the DP's tangatanga may lead to constitutional reforms if Ruto is elected president in 2022.

“There is no need to worry about this BBI because when it passes, within the 100 days of Ruto’s administration, we shall launch an amendment process to weed out the contentious clauses,” Woman Representative Gladys Shollei said.
