“Friends, bravado, hubris, and threats are not necessary. BBI is for all of us. Let us all agree on the implementation matrix. Institutions, departments, ministries, commissions, Parliament and the Judiciary will handle the relevant sections. Those requiring referenda, if any, be taken to people. No need for us versus them,” he struck a conciliatory tone.

Deputy President William Ruto has challenged ODM members to now leave the BBI job to relevant bodies.

Speaking for the first time since its launch last Wednesday, Ruto took o his twitter on Friday Nov 29th asking ODM party to understand that Building Bridges Initiative BBI was there to help all Kenyans and not just a few people.

“Friends, bravado, hubris, and threats are not necessary. BBI is for all of us. Let us all agree on the implementation matrix. Institutions, departments, ministries, commissions, Parliament and the Judiciary will handle the relevant sections. Those requiring referenda, if any, be taken to people. No need for us versus them,” he struck a conciliatory tone.

Ruto’s sentiments come hot on the heel of referendum calls by ODM leader Raila Odinga who is believed to be advocating for the referendum way to ensure that the BBI report sails through.

The Standard reported on Friday, November 29th, that the ODM leader holds thought that, if left to parliament, the Ruto-allied MPs would shoot down the whole thing. Ruto would also bjuy all MPs and interfere with the true stand of Kenyans.

The fears were informed by Jubilee Party’s tyranny of numbers, which could spell doom on the project that Raila believes will unite the country.
