The second in command was speaking at his Karen home on Wednesday after meeting clergy and national officials of African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa(AIPCA), where among other issues, he encouraged the clergy to organise a mass drive to encourage Kenyans to take a Covid-19 vaccine jabs.

The DP also laughed off attempts of what he claimed were plans to revive the BBI through a new method. He said that this country belongs to God and their will be no room for "reggae" through any attempts.

His claims come at a time a section of parliamentarians have expressed their their motives to to change some important sections of the BBI through a Parliamentary way.

"Hii BBI si niliwaambia itakwama. Waliipitisha na fujo lakini mungu ni nani. Na sasa nasikia wanajaribu kutafuta njia ingine, hakuna hii reggae imeisha kabisha," Ruto said which losely translates to;

"I told you that this reggae will come to an end. They passed it by force(through national and county assemblies) but who is God. I hear that their are trying other avenues but they will not succeed. The reggae is gone."


Moreover, Ruto asked his supporters to remain cool and avoid being disturbed by whatever is currently going on within the country. He said that everything going on is out of a small confusion but will soon come to an end.

"Hiyo mambo ingine yote ambayo inaendelea msikuwe na wasiwazi. Ni kuchanganyikiwa tu kidogo lakini tutapanga vizuri," Ruto said which losely translates to;

"Don't be worried about what is going on. It is just a small confusion but we will soon put things to order."

The DP's sentiments comes few hours after Equity bank Managing Director Gerald Warui, while appearing before the National Assembly's Finance Committee chaired by Homabay Woman Rep Gladys Wanga, refuted claims of either receiving a call from DP Ruto or knowing the Turkish investor Harun Aydin in relations to the 15billion loan alleged to have been taken from the bank.
