Is Uhuru now talking out of both sides of his mouth in supporting DP Ruto in 2022? | PERSPECTIVE

President Uhuru Kenyatta has dismissed claims he is using the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to fight his deputy William Ruto.

Uhuru yesterday said it was unfortunate that some politicians were fighting his efforts to unite the country by claiming they are being locked out of the BBI process.

“I find it very unfortunate that as I try to unite Kenya, some people feel that I am locking them out. I am not fighting any person. I am working for all the 47 million Kenyans,” said Uhuru.

The President and opposition chief Raila Odinga entered a unity pact on March 9 2018.

The pact was dubbed “handshake”. Dr Ruto and his allies have publicly opposed it as a scheme to block Ruto from ascending to the presidency.

Uhuru who addressed the nation from State House Mombasa yesterday, said he has not declared interest in extending his stay in office.

He also dismissed claims that he is using BBI to create political positions.
