ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi has teared into DP William Ruto for taking Kenyans in circles over the BBI debate.
Taking on social media, Mudavadi noted how consensus is key in the agenda and that Kenyans have a no or yes. He continued by saying that by taking Kenyans in circles amounts to failed leadership.
“Building consensus is key, but time is of the essence. The BBI has timelines that should be adhered to for the country to have a say and move on. As a leader, taking Kenyans in circles without a clear position amounts to a failure to provide effective leadership.” said Mudavadi.

The ANC party leader was speaking hours after the Deputy President hosted various leaders at his Karen residence before addressing the media afterwards.
In his speech, the Deputy President called for the BBI process to be done alongside the general election in 2022 citing financial constraints that can better be used to revive the economy following the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is our submission that we hold the proposed referendum in 2022 together with the General Election. This will save costs and re-direct the limited resources at our disposal to mitigating the effects the COVID-19 pandemic.
The BBI consensus we seek and this country needs is in the form of content, process and timing; this means we must agree on the what, how and when so as to align the process with its founding objectives and bring it closer to people‘s aspirations.” said DP Ruto
