Weeks after his Kenol meeting in Murang’a was marred by chaos and teargas, Deputy President William Ruto has received a major reception after landing in the county for the second time in a span of two months.
Ruto, on Friday morning, landed in Kangema, where he led the empowerment of Kangema Boda Boda Sacco comprising 722 riders at the General Kago Stadium, Kangema, Murang’a County.
The DP was ushered into the area by a large multitude, which turned up to listen to Ruto’s hustler nation gospel as well as his stand on the recently launched BBI report.
Speaking at Kangema, Ruto insisted on the need for all leaders to reach consensus on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) instead of dividing Kenyans further through a referendum.
“All the issues raised in the BBI can be passed if we settle and discuss together and walk together, not dividing Kenyans through a referendum,” DP Ruto said.
The DP also scoffed at some leaders who he accused of politicizing the BBI with the aim of looting public coffers. Ruto threw jabs at the ODM party leader Raila Odinga, saying it was not possible to hold a referendum with less than 2billion shillings, adding that the previous one took over 10 billion yet the population that took part was only 12 million people.
The second in command also took time to campaign for the hustler nation saying it was going to be about a nationwide conversation that will involve the haves and the have nots will be had.
“We will talk about the Prime Minister position, but we will also talk about the hustlers because everyone is important in this country,” Ruto added.
The DP later proceeded to Mathioya in the same county, where he led a women empowerment program at Rurii Stadium, Kiriani, Mathioya constituency.
