Ruto asks BBI team not to push for a system that will divide Kenyans


Deputy President William Ruto has cautioned the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) experts not to propose a system of Government that would isolate other communities in Kenya.

He warned against creating executive positions for a few and excluding other communities saying the move would breed division and ethnicity.

“If we change the constitution so that about five communities get positions in Government, what will happen to the rest of the 39 communities in Kenya?” He posed.

Dr Ruto spoke on Sunday in Naromoru, Nyeri County, where he noted that the biggest problem facing the country was leaders who are not ready to accept the will of the people.

“Are we deepening inclusion of all in the Government or are we entrenching and rubberstamping marginalisation and exclusion?” He added.

The Deputy President said Kenyans would want a constitution that would make it posible for anyone, despite their status, to ascend to power.
