  • President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday, January 30, alluded that his Deputy  William Ruto almost snatched his microphone during the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) at the Bomas of Kenya.

    The president was speaking at the Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri where he is meeting over 7,000 strong delegation of Mt Kenya leaders.

    "A certain person creeped behind me and almost snatched my microphone at Bomas of Kenya when I was explaining the extent in his involvement in the BBI process," the president stated.

    Uhuru was referring to an incident that happened in Bomas where the DP stood up and whispered something in his ear.

    At the time, the president was explaining that the DP was kept abreast with all the matters regarding the report. 

    "In fact, he helped me identify some of the people I just mentioned here, and the purpose as I had told him and as we agreed with Raila, was never to talk about what shall happen tomorrow in terms of elective posts. I said it was an extension of what I and you did in 2013," he had stated.

    Today, the president refuted claims that he had made a promise to support the DP, adding his only vow was to the people of Kenya.

    "Some people keep saying I made a promise to them... Ask your guy why he can't allow me to do my work and keeps coming back for the baton, instead of waiting for his turn," he added.

    The president stated that his prayer was to leave the country better than he had found it.

    "Those coming to tell you bad things about me and telling you to reject what I am proposing, ask them what they are offering in the alternative," he continued.

    He added that some politicians were bragging about work that had been done by the state and asked them to stop rallying supporters with the work that he had done.
