Following the Supreme Court verdict on BBI, Deputy President William Ruto has urged on President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner, ODM leader Raila Odinga, to apologize to Kenyans. The Supreme Court deemed the Building Bridges Initiative illegal on Thursday, thereby putting an end to all attempts to resurrect the initiative, which had previously been declared dead by the High Court and Court of Appeal. DP Ruto tore into his political opponents during a campaign stop in Lamu County, claiming that God had answered Kenyans’ prayers by demolishing the BBI.
According to the Deputy President, who has been a vocal critic of the initiative, proponents of the BBI have wasted Kenyans’ time by attempting to popularize an “unpopular” goal and should apologize to Kenyans. “Leo mahakama ya Supreme Court Kenya imesema BBI ilikua ni ukora mtupu na utapeli mtupu. Hawa jamaa walitumia pesa ya serikali, wakatumia uwezo wa serikali na wakitumia njia ya kimambavu kujaribu kuhujumu katiba ya Kenya,” Ruto stated.”Now that the Supreme Court has confirmed that the BBI and all the shenanigans surrounding it were matters unconstitutional, illegal, null, and void, we want to tell our Handskake brothers and the BBI fraud they feasted on the people of Kenya, the Handshake brothers need to make an apology to the people of Kenya.”
The UDA leader also stated that the process of popularizing the BBI resulted in the Jubilee government’s second-term plans being stalled due to the process of popularizing the BBI. “They have wasted four years of our time, they have undermined the Big 4 plans that were intended to deliver jobs to our people in favor of a fake exercise meant to serve the selfish desires of a few,” Ruto added.
