How Ruto is Applying This Power Tactic Borrowed From Raila After Inauguration


The President has had a change of heart if his new power tactics is anything to go by. Ruto was against the Azimio leader Raila Odinga's push for constitutional changes through the Building Bridges Initiative - BBI. The initiative wanted to change the 2010 constitution after the famous handshake between former president Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga on March 9, 2018.

The President Ruto had an issue with the winner takes all question. Currently he is borrowing the tactics he was fighting to reward his close Allies, for regional and ethnic balance within Kenya Kwanza coalition. He nominated Musalia Mudavadi to the position of Prime Cabinet Secretary, a position the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga pushed for in the BBI.

The former United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party vice-chairperson Kipruto Arap Kirwa while on KTN news on Tuesday, October 4 said that Ruto's administration is introducing the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) through the back door. The President has maintained that Kenya Kwanza focuses on how to improve the lives of millions of Kenyans and not on positions and he should therefore follow the High Court's decision to declare the BBI unconstitutional, null and void according to Arap Kirwa.
