Ruto blames BBI for stalled State projects
Kenya Kwanza team, led by Deputy President William Ruto, resumed their campaigns in Western Kenya yesterday, with a pledge to complete all stalled State projects initiated by the Jubilee administration if they win the August election.
Ruto said many of the projects which were started by the Jubilee administration covering roads infrastructure, the revival of the collapsed industries, supply of clean water and other key projects he claimed collapsed because of the Handshake between Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Ruto claimed Uhuru and Raila instead diverted the monies set for the projects to the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) which was recently declared illegal by the courts. “The Kenya Kwanza government will complete all projects started by the Jubilee government but stalled.
The BBI has brought a lot of losses to this country,” said Ruto. Ruto was hosted by other Kenya Kwanza principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula at the Nyang’ori PAG Church, where they engaged the people of Emuhaya, Hamisi, Sabatia, Vihiga and Luanda on their Bottom-Up Economic Model.
Ruto said Kenya Kwanza will have a direct, intentional and proactive engagement with the boda bodas, mama mbogas, farmers and other traders to offer them an opportunity to rebuild their economy.
Mudavadi cautioned voters in Western Kenya against supporting Raila for President saying he had nothing to offer the region.
He told the gathering that Western Kenya was not represented in the apex body of the Azimio team which brings together Uhuru, Raila and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka. Wetang’ula asked Western Kenya residents to be wary of the Azimio team which he said was renowned for betraying its key supporters.
