hursday, May 27, 2021 -Deputy President William Ruto has claimed that it will be hard for the Building Bridges Initiative BBI to see the light of day without his input.
Revealing this during the National Prayer Breakfast Day held at Parliament Building on Thursday May 27, the DP advised the president that navigating the challenges the BBI is currently facing will require people sitting together and sharing ideas.
“Tanga Tanga tours are over and the reggae has also stopped. I think we have to listen and do something together.
“Former Prime Minister (Raila Odinga) said something profound (in 2018). In fact, in a very uncharacteristic manner, he gave us a verse, Isaiah 1:18 that says ‘come let us reason together. Maybe God is speaking to us again, telling us to reason together,” Ruto said.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.— Isaiah 1:18. pic.twitter.com/CJ0mQJziQp

But on his part, President Uhuru Kenyatta steered clear of any direct confrontation with Ruto and only preached peace and unity.
“The prayers that have been said today are geared towards giving us hope at a time when we are confronted by the worst health pandemic ever.
“We need to pull and work together and have hope that we are indeed able to overcome this challenge. Let us not hear the summons today and forget these teachings tomorrow,” Uhuru addressed.
Further, the head of State urged both speakers Muturi and Lusaka to expedite passing of the health bills so that he can finally sign them for the benefit of all Kenyans.
