Huge Blow to Dp Ruto After His Mount Kenya Ally Dumps Him For BBI

The 2022 succession politics and Building Bridges Initiative continues to gain momentum, becoming the most talked issues in Kenya.The BBI report is set to be tabled on National Assembly tommorow after more than 24 counties passed it. On the other hand, succession politics continues with Raila Odinga touring the Coast, while Ruto is in Narok.

Ruto has been dealt a huge blow after his ally, former Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri dumped him for BBI. Kiunjuri was quoted today, saying that the BBI document 80 percent okay. He added that the constitutional reform should be passed without voting or engaging in 'No' and 'Yes' campaigns.

Kiunjuri's remarks rattles out what Dp Ruto has been saying about BBI, that it requires more consultations and consensus, for it to address pertinent issues affecting the common Kenyans. Kiunjuri has been a close ally of Ruto and was tipped to become the running mate of the DP in 2022.
