DP Ruto dismisses reports claiming he’s against BBI, says they are fake


Deputy President William Ruto has denied claims that he is plotting to derail any referendum proposal from the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) through allies.
Responding to claims that appeared on a section of the media that his allies were planning to scuttle any efforts by BBI, which enjoys the support of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition chief Raila Odinga to push for the law change, DP Ruto termed the reports fake and pleaded with them to stop linking him to them.
The Star headline ‘Ruto allies plot to scuttle Uhuru, Raila referendum’ did not go down well with the DP prompting the reaction.
“This is what constitutes FAKE NEWS. I know it is difficult but newspapers should try selling without the ‘Ruto’ mention. Please! Tafadhali woiye!” he wrote on his twitter with the screenshot Star newspaper headline.
This is the second time Ruto dismissing a Newspaper headline fake in a span of one month.
Last month, Ruto called out the Standard newspaper for its front-page headline ‘Why Uhuru avoided Ruto at the airport’.
The story indicated that President Uhuru avoided Ruto during his arrival at JKIA from the Zambia trip.
