Makindu — A section of leaders led by Deputy President William Ruto have said the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) should not be turned into a political contest.

Deputy President Dr William Ruto has called Kenyans to stop engaging in politics of ‘sizing each other up’ but instead focus in development oriented politics.

Ruto said the ongoing Building Bridge Initiative (BBI) meetings being held in different parts of the country by politicians are meant to divide Kenyans instead of uniting them.

Instead, the DP urged politicians to let Kenyans decide for themselves without chocking them with lies.

“Let give kenyans an opportunity to give their views on the BBI.

“There are no superior views, there are no inferior views, every view is important from every quarter ” he said.

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka on his part said that though BBI there isan opportunity to unite Kenyans, “But we should guard against making it a tribal outfit meant to divide Kenyans.”

“Today several leaders are at Bukhungu Stadium … Wetangula, Musalia … it tells you this BBI is bringing Kenyans together … but what are we doing here as Kenyans celebrating the tribe?”, he questioned.

They were speaking during the burial of Rael Mbeleete, mother to the former Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu in Makindu, Makueni County on Saturday.

Former Senator Johnson Muthama took a different stand saying that the Kamba community is not supporting BBI.
