After BBI passed a minimum threshold of 24 counties required for it to go another stage, various critics of Dp Ruto came out and started hitting at the second in command, claiming that he has been defeated.
Nominated MP Maina Kamanda, who is also a close ally of Uhuru Kenyatta, has said that he warned Dp Ruto against trusting Kikuyus but he could not listen. Kamanda also said that BBI has passed and they are having a last laugh since Ruto was promised that BBI will not pass in Mount Kenya, by few leaders from the region. He continued to say that was the first hit and the Kikuyus will show who they are. He added that they will still eat Dp Ruto's money and not support him in his quest for 2022 presidency.
So far, Ruto enjoys support from most of the vocal Mps from the Mount Kenya region. All the region's counties also passed BBI.Some of the DP's allies have already come out and defended him, saying BBI does not affect Ruto's influence in the region, as he was not against the report.
