The BBI is an agreement between Uhuru and Raila to lock out DP Ruto from 2022 presidential race and winning. The two feel that Ruto has too much baggage and tags that will take Kenya down if he ever becomes president. So they are doing everything possible to lock him out. If you read the BBI, the integrity clauses are very clear. Ruto will not pass the intergrety. Kwanza hiyo shamba ya muteshi.. Hatoboi.
Kindly note, Ruto would have been a very strong candidate if he were not to be tamed. Very few Kenyans can match his style of campaigns and how he works his supporters into a frenzy.
According to what we gathered from deep state persons like Atwoli, the donors and western countries are categorical. They don’t want Ruto.
With that in mind, we as Kenyans must allow Raila and Uhuru to tame Ruto. It is good for all of us, for our economy and for our future. If BBI is the tool to do so… SO BE IT. Kwani iko nini?
SECONDLY, The BBI report is about ensuring that the president has powers to make him rule and return our economy back to what it was before the 2010 constitution. The person ELECTED president in future should not go through what Uhuru has gone through with and corruption cells fighting him and pulling him down. Do you recall when Uhuru said, his hands are tied? That he cannot fight corruption with the current constitution??
BBI NOW gives the president teeth and power to bite and to lead.
- Some of the things making Kenyans feel the BBI is a fraud eg, 35% to counties, Helb holiday for youth finishing universities, more women in the senate etc, … Those are incentives to ensure the BBI REPORT goes through. Do not dwell on that for too long. The issue is economic recovery. A good sober leader will do it as long as he has a supportive parliament, PM and youth.
The BBI REPORT is a working document. Kenyans and parliament still have the opportunity to make amendments.
But If you want a great peaceful country with a good economy, this BBI should not bother you. Let us VOTE YES, pass it and then vote for a president WITH LEADERSHIP QUALITIES, AN ECONOMIST, a man or a woman who is acceptable and a safe pair of hands who can unite Kenya and build the economy the way Kibaki did. Period.
