Ruto's Powerful Aide Farouk Kibet Reacts to BBI With Errors, Hints The Cause as he Predicts Its Fate

Deputy president William Ruto's powerful aide Farouk Kibet has slammed political leaders criticizing Members of County Assemblies for debating the building bridges Initiative despite knowing that it had errors.

Through his Twitter account, Kibet on Friday alleged that MCAs who overwhelmingly endorsed the report did so after receiving intimidation threats.

"Let's not blame MCAs for passing Lancaster Bills and Devonshire White paper reports in county Assemblies, blame the intimidation and bravado from the orders from above."

He went on to allege that the BBI drive was staring at a closed path following the issues raised amidst several cases filed in court against the report.

"Meanwhile, it's crystal clear that BBI is going nowhere." He added.

Reports from the joint Justice and Legal Affairs Committee disclosed that only 11 counties debated the correct document, in addition to the National Assembly and the Senate possessing different versions.

The members have however stated that the errors will be attended to and the BBI drive will take its course.
