President Uhuru Kenyatta has come under intense criticism over speculation he might use the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to create the office of Prime Minister for himself.
Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga are due to receive the much-awaited report tomorrow amid allegations by a section of political leaders that there could be a plot to extend Uhuru’s hold on power.
Speaking at Kiganjo in Thika during a church service, Emurua Dikkir MP Johana Ng’eno cautioned the President against trying to remain in power using “the same means as some leaders from the region.”
“This is not Uganda. If you want to extend your term, go to Uganda,” Ng’eno fired.
Ng’eno further claimed that Uhuru has only two intentions with the BBI that is “to get rid of Ruto and to extend his hold on to power.”
“We will fight with BBI to death if that is his intention. We have a democracy. Why tell Uhuru he is a young person yet Obama was also young but he retired?” he asked.
Ruto lieutenants promised to upset the BBI proponents should the document not meet their desired outcome.
