Kenyans will be waiting to see how the region will receive Ruto in the aftermath of the launch of the BBI report on Monday.
On Monday, the DP poked holes into the report which is likely to lead to a referendum.
We can reject BBI and still reject Ruto in 2022, no?
Why are rejecting BBI and supporting Ruto being bundled together like some value pack.. or, as if in some unholy matrimony?

According to the DP, the proposal to create the position of Prime Minister and two deputies does not necessarily solve the issue of inclusivity.

The report has recommended that the President should appoint a PM from the Majority Party in Parliament. The two deputies should be appointed from Cabinet. But Ruto has questioned where this will leave the opposition.

1. Mr Uhuru would want him to take a slasher and clear bushes.
2. Mr Ruto wants to give him a wheelbarrow.
3. Mr Odinga want him to sit and listen to BBI and vitendawili!
