Renowned analyst Didmus Mokua has urged the deputy president Dr William Ruto to organise his own rallies in support of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Mokua advised that the country's second in command identifies positive things in the BBI report that he agrees with and then drum up support for those aspects.
"If I were the DP and his allies, we would pick up the good ideas in BBI and then take it to the next level, What stops the DP from organising a big BBI rally in Kisumu this weekend? And you know he runs the show, he goes with his team and they run with it. I think that is what he must do, " the renowned analyst said.(2:04-2:22)
So far the deputy president has stayed away from the BBI meetings that have been held in various parts of the country.
The only BBI meeting that he graced was the public launch of the BBI report by President Uhuru Kenyatta at the historic Bomas of Kenya.
He has been especially critical of how the meetings have been organised and conducted, saying that divergent views are not being accommodated.
In an interview with NTV's Ken Mijungu, the deputy president said that he would give his views to the Haji-led steering committee when the committee starts collecting views.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga has been at the centre of the BBI meetings which could explain why the deputy president has not been part of them.
Only his close allies like the Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria among others have made a point of attending the rallies.
