By Susan Njire

Deputy President William Ruto was a no- show on Wednesday in Kisii county as the BBI report was being handed over to president Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

Instead Ruto graced the burial of Huruma MCA Peter Chomba who died from covid-19 complications. After attending the mashujaa day celebrations in Kisii county on Tuesday, Ruto travelled to his home County of Uasin Gishu to attend the funeral of the former Huruma Ward representative.

Chomba’s  elder brother Lenny Chomba and uncle Kiiru Chomba said an autopsy revealed the ward rep.  died of covid-19 complications. Ruto in his short speech at the mashujaa day celebrations at Gusii stadium called on the handshake partners Uhuru and Raila to include all Kenyans in the BBI reggae.

Ruto insisted that there was a need to bring everyone on board to ensure the country realizes the the much needed unity. “The former prime Minister Raila Odinga has talked about reggae, that is fine. But I guess we will have a robust national conversation that will bring everybody on board.” DP said.

The DP has been a fierce critic of the initiative terming it an agenda aimed at creating positions for a few people at the expense of the poor Kenyans.
