After the debates in both houses of parliament, Kenyans will have an opportunity to decide at the ballot on whether to adopt the changes or not, through a referendum.

Deputy President William Ruto and his Hustler Nation allies have since the inception of BBI been known to be opposed to the agenda to amend the constitution.

However after his recent statement while addressing a rally in Nandi County on Friday 26th, the DP has seemed outsmarted on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

The DP broke his silence on leading a NO campaign against BBI. He stated that he will respect the will of the people and should the people decide to go for a new constitution or not, he is okay with it.

"There are some people who expect me to lead a certain faction on the constitutional Amendments,let me tell you.l will respect the will of the people.if they decide to bring a new Constitution l'm okey with it.if we use the current one l'm also okey with it."~Deputy President Dr.William Ruto.

The sentiments by DP Ruto have sparked a series of mixed reactions from Kenyans including;

"So no need of referendum,let them change or not." - Dominic Ariemba

"A conman is a name that fits this man, he is sitting on the fence,,,he can't take a stand and lead his people! As a nation we should really worry about such cunning politicians." - Dennis Coax

"Keep them guessing your next move. Don't let the devil misuse you." - Peter Huddled

"So BBI is unstoppable?" - Waruhio Itote

"This man is a water melon." - Moi Kivisu

Do you think the DP has been outsmarted on BBI?
