Deputy President William Ruto, on Sunday, March 1, made a statement that left more questions than answers.
Speaking during the Sunday service at the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK), Emmanuel Parish, Butere Diocese, Khwisero Constituency, Kakamega County, the DP promised to bring an end to the BBI narrative which he claimed had been hijacked.
“Kenya is not a country for Reggae, Marijuana, and witches, it is a country of God and prayers. Don’t be worried, this Reggae of witches will stop,” he announced.

This was in direct contrast to the message that was read out on his behalf by Meru Senator Mithika Linturi at the BBI rally held in his hometown on February 29.
“Pia niko na apology nimetumwa niseme tuko pamoja katika hii kitu ya BBI na naibu Rais William Ruto ( The DP has asked me to let you know that he is in full support of this BBI project and that he is sorry that he was not able to make it to this event),” the senator disclosed, leading to a rapturous applause from the crowd.
In his latest remarks, the DP made it clear that he felt that the entire BBI rally was now a political tool being used to push personal agendas, adding that he would do everything in his power to derail such efforts.
“Kenyans want good roads. Kenyans want water and electricity in their homesteads, they want their children to have access to education. We cannot accept Kenya’s agenda to be driven by a few people who are after lofty positions,” he stated.
His latest sentiment echoed Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen’s sentiments during the fiery rally in Meru.
The Senate majority leader stole the show when he called out the BBI supporters when he took to the podium, accusing them of hoodwinking Kenyans.
“We were elected so that we can help solve issues of the public. Money was allocated to do so, therefore stop lying to Kenyans that the BBI, will solve the economy,” he stated
He went on to urge a section of political leaders to stop insulting DP Ruto, adding that respecting the President went hand in hand with respecting his second in command.
