Deputy President William Ruto has now accused the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party of hijacking the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI)for its own interests.

According to the DP, the Raila Odinga-led opposition party is using the BBI to craft its line up ahead of the 2022 General Elections.

Taking to Twitter in what has become his regular online rants, DP Ruto further alleged that the opposition party was trying to wreck the ruling Jubilee Party.

He also stated that the National Super Alliance (NASA) – made up of ODM, Ford-Kenya, Wiper Democratic Movement and the Amani National Congress (ANC) – is officially dead.

The deputy president on Friday condemned politicians for holding BBI forums across the country saying it was a waste of public money.

“When the BBI report was released, leaders agreed to give enough copies to the people so they can read it by themselves and make their own decisions,” he said.

“When did this change to leaders organising political mobilisation forums so as to read the report for the people? This is a new twist. No one is opposed to the BBI. Why this campaign and what is it about? Is it aimed at misusing public funds?”
