“Avoid Tribal Politcs” Deputy President advices as politicians campaign for BBI

Deputy President William Ruto refused to be drawn into the debate on how the government was reckless in allowing flights from China- the epicenter of the corona-virus (COVID 19) outbreak, land in Nairobi withj 239 passengers.

Dr. Ruto who was at Tarambeta in Gilgil sub-county, Nakuru county steered clear the issue even as area MP Martha Wangari , her Naivasha counterpart Jane Kihara and woman representative Liza Chelule condemned government officials for risking the lives of Kenyans.

Ms. Wangari hit out the CS’s for Health and Foreign affairs noting that they would be held personally responsible if any case was reported in the country.

“It’s sad that when other countries are blocking flights from China, in Kenya we are openly welcoming them at a time when the virus has killed many,” he said.

Kihara and Chelule said the government needs to be vigilante in the face of the outbreak that has shocked the world and caused thousands of deaths.

However, the deputy president continued with his attacks on the proponents of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) who he maintained were out to advance personal selfish interests by spreading ethnic hate.

Ruto said that Kenyans were free to buy land in any part of the country and seek any political position.

The DP lashed out at the politicians noting that he would not allow the country to be divided on petty and tribal grounds.

“Some petty politicians are advocating their interests through BBI and we want to warn them that any Kenya can own land anywhere and seek any political position,”

“We shall also reject the plan by some politicians to outlaw church contributions as we are a God fearing nation,” he said.

Ruto at the same time expressed his concern over the recent move to reject plans to construct Malewa Dam in Nyandarua which would be used to supply water to Gilgil and Naivasha.

“We have directed the Ministry of Water to engage the stakeholders again as this water will also be used in the Industrial Park in Mai Mahiu,” he said.

On BBI, Wangari questioned the move to ferry people to Meru for the weekend rally wondering who was sponsoring the transport.

This was echoed by Ms. Kihara who said that ideas in the original BBI document as presented in Bomas had been hijacked and changed.

“We have decided to keep off this BBI rallies as they have ended up splitting Kenyans further instead of uniting them as previously planned,” she said.

Ms. Chelule said that the country needed water, schools, teacher and good roads as the demands currently been made in the BBI rallies had been captured in the constitution.

“The biggest need we were demanding was devolution and this was achieved in the new constitution and we don’t see the benefit of this rallies,” she said
