After Celebrating High Court Ruling, Ruto Now Emerges With a Lasting Solution on BBI

Deputy President William Ruto has suggested that he would be willing to be involved in talks and an agreement on how the nation moves forward, regarding the referendum issue.

He is among those who have been questioning the proposed constitutional changes and the process taken to realize them, and is currently seen as the face of the opposition to the suggested amendments.

But he has said that he would be willing to be involved in talks to determine what happens to the nation henceforth, though some of the proponents are his rivals, as this would enhance the unity of the country.

“We should have an agreement that creates a path for Kenyans to work together even as we compete,” he said from his Karen home on Tuesday, according to The Standard.

He has also called upon leaders to be discreet in their push for changes, adding that they also need to put the interests of the country first and help fight Kenyans' problems.

His remark comes almost a week after the High Court nullified the BBI process, a ruling that was made by a five judge bench, which declared the entire process null and void.

He took to social media to celebrate the ruling, despite the fact that the initiative was cofounded by his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, alongside his new political buddy and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

“There is GOD in heaven who loves Kenya immeasurably. May GOD'S name is praised forever,” said the DP.

He has been of the idea that if the changes must be made through a plebiscite, then Kenyans should be allowed to chose what they want from the list through a multiple choice referendum.
