Deputy President William Ruto was forced to cut short his speech, for the second day in a row after angry Nyandarua residents heckled him, over his opposition to the BBI. Ruto, who had earlier attended a Sunday service at Africa Inland Church (AIC) Engineer in Kinangop Constituency had a hard time with the angry crowd after welcoming ousted Majority Whip of the Senate Irungu Kangata to speak.
On Friday, the DP while on a tour in Isiolo county was heckled by youths chanting slogans in support of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) and castigating the hustler narrative as demeaning and divisive.
“I am asking you the people of Isiolo, have I and President Uhuru Kenyatta constructed roads here? and constructed the railway?,” the DP posed before the youths started shouting BBI, forcing him to cut short his speech.
During the Isiolo tour, the DP declared he will not resign, a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta said those not content with the performance of the Jubilee government to quit instead of lamenting in public forums.
“I will continue working as the Deputy President of Kenya because that is my position under the Constitution,” Ruto declared in Isiolo, adding, “There is absolutely no contest between my boss and I respect the decision of His Excellency the President, and the President calls the shots, he is in charge and he makes all decisions and I have not countermanded any decision.”
