Dp Ruto Blame BBI For Interfering With Jubilee Development Agenda.

Deputy President William Ruto has said that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) has taken center stage in the country at the expense of the Jubilee development agenda.

Responding to claims by the chairman of Council of Governors Wycliffe Oparanya that a report on the revival of sugarcane factories in Western Kenya has been shelved, Dr Ruto said more focus was now on BBI instead of development programs.

Speaking at Nakhwana grounds in Bumula constituency, Bungoma County, during the funeral service of Maurice Mabonga Wanjala, father to MP Mwambu Mabonga, the Deputy President noted that BBI has slowed down the Jubilee development agenda.

“The BBI team that include Mr Oparanya came and told us that there is an emergency that needed to be sorted out. That’s why the Jubilee development agenda including implementation of the sugar revival programme has been abandoned,” said Dr Ruto.

He said issues of Nzoia and Mumias could have been addressed were it not of the ‘urgency’ of BBI.

Present were Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka, Governors Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega), Wycliffe Wangamati (Bungoma), MPs Moses Mabonga ( Bumula), Wafula Wamunyinyi (Kanduyi), John Waluke (Sirisia), Eseli Simiyu (Tongaren), Catherine Wambilianga (Women Rep, Bungoma), Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East)  Emmanuel Wangwe (Navakholo)and Fred Kapondi (Mt Elgon).
