Deputy President William Ruto says the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report advocates to tone down their threats and allow Kenyans to have a decent debate on the document.


Addressing in Matungu during a church service at Our Lady of Assumption Indangalasia Parish, the DP warned unnamed politicians against issuing threats of nobody can stop reggae and allow Kenyans to read the report and see what is in it for them.

“Let us stop insults, threats and competition of nobody can stop reggae, we want an inclusive debate from all Kenyans small or powerful before we can take action on the proposed changes,” he said.


He said President Uhuru Kenyatta told Kenyans to read the document and make suggestions on how they want to be governed.

“We want all Kenyans to be allowed to be heard not threats of nobody can stop reggae,” he added.


He, however, maintained that the BBI report must address the plight of millions of Kenyans locked out of the country’s economy circle by unemployment and poverty before it looks into leadership positions for politicians.


"Millions of Kenyans locked out of the economic cycle by poverty and unemployment must be given an opportunity and must have a say in the document,” Ruto said.

The DP faulted the inclusivity being fronted in the report saying it only talks about leaders and not the ordinary citizens.

He said the real inclusivity talk must focus on ordinary Kenyans suffering out there and not a few positions at the top for politicians.

“Before we bring together leaders in this inclusivity talk, we must talk about the ordinary Kenyans.”

Ruto said the discussion must first deal with youth unemployment and poverty before addressing issues of power if the report was to help Kenyans.

“As we debate the report we must be clear that there are issues that concern leaders and those that concern ordinary Kenyans and I feel we must start with hustlers first before we talk about positions,” he said.
