Deputy President William Ruto has taken to Twitter to celebrate BBI’s fall at the Court of Appeal.

The Appellate court ruled on Friday, August 20, that the High Court rightly threw out the BBI Constitutional amendment push over legal shortcomings.

“God, our heavenly Father, has come through for Kenya and stopped the coalition of the known, the mighty, and the powerful from destroying our Constitution,” said Ruto on Twitter.

“Our God, help the alliance of the unknown, the jobless, the hustlers and struggling farmers to now engineer our economy from bottom up.”

The DP’s remarks come barely an hour after ODM leader Raila Odinga resigned himself to fate, saying the BBI debate would be revived years to come.

Odinga said it was high time people moved on.
