2 mins read

Deputy President William Ruto has expressed his fears over the rumored return of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), saying the document aims at installing an imperial president in the upcoming August polls.

Speaking on Tuesday during the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) national delegates conference at the Kasarani indoors arena in Nairobi, DP Ruto said there were plans to bring back the Uhuru-Raila-backed initiative by their competitors, in an attempt to strangulate the judiciary and the legislature.

”Our opponents want to bring the BBI monster back. They want to bring an imperial president who controls the judiciary and the legislature. We want to tell you that this country belongs to millions of Kenyans and not those in power.

On the ballot, there will be two groups; one which believes that the way to the future of our country is through changing the constitution. On our side, we believe that the way to the future of our nation is by changing the economy,” said DP Ruto.

The UDA presidential candidate also drummed up support for the hustler nation saying their economic model is the only way to liberate Kenya.

“We want Kenyans to have the opportunity to hustle from the bottom – it is not bottom versus up, it is bottom-up!” Ruto said, adding that the last four years when he was sidelined in the government gave him the opportunity to reflect on the plight of ordinary Kenyans.
