Feb, 22nd 2021 – Deputy President William Ruto has warned against divisive politics as the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) debate continues in the county assemblies.
Speaking at the burial service of a spiritual leader, Mzee William Kipkemei Kurgat, in Kapseret Constituency, he said, BBI politics should not divide the country, as the unity of Kenyans, remains key to the attainment of peace and development.
He yet again said that the government will bring development through the Big 4 Agenda.
The Deputy President further urged politicians to stop banking on endorsements on matters of presidency. He instead urged them to sell their agendas to Kenyans.
He said that those seeking leadership positions should get in touch with Kenyans rather than waiting for endorsements.
He urged Kenyans to thoroughly evaluate the track record of individuals seeking leadership positions ahead of the next general election.
“Leaders should not wait to be handed power on a silver platter. It is the people who decide on matters of leadership,” he said.
“Leadership is not a situation where some few individuals can sit in a certain corner and decide for millions of Kenyans who will be their next president. That’s the work of voters,” he added.
