Isaac Ruto Speaks After Baringo MCAs Rejected BBI

By Matet Ambrose

Former Bomet county Governor Isaac Ruto has now for the first time reacted after police officers were deployed to the Baringo county assembly on Thursday as Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was being debated.

The Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader took to his social media account to castigate the happenings in the Baringo county assembly following the deployment of the security forces.

According to the former National Super Alliance (NASA) Principal, the MCAs were in a peaceful manner before they were interrupted by the security forces.

He has since feared that the dark days of no democracy is now gaining momentum since the state is using excessive power.

”A peaceful County Assembly was Teargassed today in BARINGO County; this is the saddest day in our democracy. State power was used to crush democracy in BARINGO. The dark days are back- let’s pray for our country,”said Isaac Ruto.

His sentiments come after the police lobbied teargas in the county premises amid the session.

It has now been reported that the residents have come out to strongly stand with the MCAs who rejected the bill.

This also comes even after Jubilee MCAs drawn from Baringo county had visited the Headquarters of the ruling party where Secretary General Raphael Tuju urged them to support the document.
