Deputy President William Ruto has maintained his stand that consensus can be reached on the contentious issues in the Building Bridges Initiative report.
The Deputy President Tweeted a few hours after the launch of the BBI signature collection drive, which he gave a wide berth.
The event was presided over President Uhuru Kenyatta and and Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga marking the start of collection of signatures in preparation for referendum.
In his tweet, DP Ruto said Kenyans should be given a chance to express themselves and ensure a non-divisive referendum.
Even with the SIGNATURE launch there is still a real chance at CONSENSUS for a NON-DIVISIVE referendum that will give kenyans the opportunity to EXPRESS themselves without an US vs THEM, WIN vs LOSE contest. UNITY is the STRENGTH needed to fight COVID19 and organise the ECONOMY.
