Kenya's deputy president William Ruto has insisted that the 2020 Constitutional Amendment Bill (BBI) which is headed by President Uhuru Kenyatta together with his counterpart Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga, should be amended to feature in the common mwananchi.
Ruto who was addressing a rally in Nandi County on Friday claimed that the only contract that needs to be implemented is the one that ensures Kenyans at the base are benefiting from it directly by creating employment opportunities, and even sharing opportunities.
"The contract that we are writing in BBI is a contract that will give us what to share, how to share, sharing of positions, sharing of resources, sharing of power," the second in command told the crowd.
The DP went further to argue that a new contract need to be created which can solve the problems of Kenyans in such a manner that the lower level Kenyans are featured and are benefiting first before the high-class ones.
" The contract that we need to write as the people of Kenya, is the contract on how to create jobs, on how to create opportunities, on how to create wealth because the challenge in Kenya is not so much about sharing, the challenge is Kenya is about the few opportunities, the few resources and the few jobs that we in Kenya. And that is why we are saying, we are going to write a new economic contract that believes in bottom-up," he added.
