"Impunity Has No Space in Kenya," DP Ruto Criticizes Atwoli Over 'No BBI, No Elections Rhetoric,'

Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli attracted mixed reactions after claiming that the 2022 general elections would be postponed in absence of BBI.

Atwoli who is a strong BBI proponent urged Kenyans to push their MPs to ensure that BBI sails through to have the elections in 2022. This rhetoric was dismissed by a section of leaders stating that the constitution must be followed.

Speaking on KTN News on Thursday, Deputy President William Ruto joined to criticize Atwoli terming his remarks as 'language of impunity that has no space in the country.'

"The government believes in the rule of law and this administration will not do anything unconstitutional, I am very sure that there will be elections next year. Kenyans will elect their leaders whoever it will be," posed Ruto.

This comes countable days before the Court of Appeal hosts the hearing sessions on the BBI appeal filed by the proponents after five bench judges of the High Court termed the whole process unconstitutional in May.

The proceedings will take place from the 29th of June to the 2nd July, with BBI supporters hopeful that the ruling would be overturned.
