Deputy President William Ruto and MPs allied to him faulted the Building Bridges Initiative saying it is a waste of public funds.
In several rallies in Meru on Saturday, Dr Ruto said amending the Constitution would be a waste of time.
He said responsible leaders should focus on development initiatives to transform livelihoods of Kenyans instead of politicking.
“They are disturbing us with these politics calling for changes to the Constitution. Let us desist from such politics and focus on development,” he said.
The DP spoke at Mikinduri EAPC Church in Tigania East during a fundraiser and at Karumo Technical Institute in Tigania West at the wedding of politician Jim Muchui. Later, Ruto attended the thanksgiving ceremony for Igembe South MP John Mwirigi at Riaki Primary School.
Those who accompanied Ruto were Meru Senator Mithika Linturi, MPs Gitonga Murugara (Tharaka), John Mutunga (Tigania West), Gichunge Kabeabea (Tigania East) and his Njoro counterpart Charity Kathambi.
Also present were Kubai Kiringo (Igembe Central), Halima Mucheke, Kathuri Murungi and Mugambi Rindikiri. Kathambi said opposition leader Raila Odinga was plotting to get into power by changing the Constitution.
Rindikiri said: “We know the Opposition leader is meeting with relatives of rich families who have been in the leadership of this county. We want him and his associates to know that the next President will be decided by Kenyans,” he said. Kathuri said the county's leadership was in agreement to support Ruto on his race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Meanwhile, Ruto asked leaders who are worried with his Tanga Tanga moves to keep off and focus on their roles.
“I am the DP of this country and l am working since I took an oath to help President Kenyatta,” Ruto said.
