Former Agriculture CS accuses President Ruto on re-introducing the BBI through the back door

Kipruto Arap Kirwa, a former Minister of Agriculture who left President William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance party for the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya coalition party, has accused the president of trying to relaunch the Building Bridges Initiative covertly.

The initiative, which was the result of the handshake between former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and former President Uhuru Kenyatta, is currently being brought back by Ruto, according to the former powerful Minister and a leading Rift Valley politician, the president who vehemently opposed it.

He asserted that one of the ways the President is bringing back Building Bridges Initiative is by creating the office of Prime Cabinet Secretary.

He also mentions the proposal made by the Building Bridges Initiative to fill the offices of Assistant Ministers or, more accurately, Chief Administrative Secretaries by selecting Cabinet Secretaries from the parliament.

Kirwa, however, criticized Ruto for taking these actions without consulting with all parties involved.
