Fifteen MPs from Mt Kenya allied to the Tanga Tanga political lobby on Sunday rejected the Building Bridges Initiative and declared that Deputy President William Ruto’s race to State House was unstoppable.
In a bare knuckle attack on ODM leader Raila Odinga, the MPs said Dr Ruto was not giving up his presidential ambitions.
Speaking at Kangaita Primary School in Kirinyaga County, the lawmakers told Mr Odinga to forget becoming Kenya’s president.
They vowed to continue drumming up support for DP to ensure that he takes over power in 2022 elections.
The lawmakers who accompanied the Deputy President claimed the BBI was formed to propel Mr Odinga to State House and they would not embrace.
“The BBI is meant to spoil for Dr Ruto and we shall not back it,” said Mr Wambugu.
Kirinyaga Women rep Wangui Ngirici dismissed the BBI as a waste of time and resources and called for its disbandment.
however,Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa said the BBI was meant for reconciling Kenyans and ensure peace prevails but unfortunately it has turned out to be a political outfit meant to create seats for few rich ‘political rejects’.
“The BBI has become useless and it should be disbanded, Dr Ruto is our presidential candidate for 2022,” he concluded
