Deputy President William Ruto now claims that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rallies held in various parts of the country are being used to propagate hate and ethnic profiling.

Speaking on Sunday at Full Gospel Gatunduri Church in Embu, Ruto said those saying that “nobody can stop reggae” in regards to the BBI report should wait and see it being stopped.

“If this story we are being told about nobody can stop reggae… If the reggae is what we are seeing; the ethnicity that is being preached in BBI rallies and the ethnic profiling of communities, and the hate and campaign of one community against the other. If that is the reggae they are talking about… My friend reggae shall stop. We shall stop it,” said Ruto.

The deputy president said the BBI rally that took place in Narok on Saturday was used to spread  hatred and fear, vowing that he will not be blackmailed or threatened.

“Naskia sana sana watu wengi wa reggae ni watu wa kuvuta bangi. Sasa kama mnatuambia ati hii reggae ambayo sakramenti yake ni bangi ati haiwezi kusimamishwa Kenya hii ambayo inamcha mungu… mnacheza,” said Ruto.

He added: “We are not going to be blackmailed or threatened or victimized by people who don’t believe in God.”

The DP was accompanied by among other MPs Moses Kuria, Ndindi Nyoro, Rigathi Gachagua John Muchiri, Jane Wanjuki Thitima.

MP Moses Kuria alluded that already the final draft on the BBI was already developed but the Senator Yusuf Haji-led commitee was only hoodwinking Kenyans.

He said that the document caters for the personal interests of political leaders, adding that he will mobilize Kenyans to reject it.

Other speakers at the event vowed to mobilize their constituents to reject the BBI if it negates what residents have proposed to be included in the final report.
