“We were surprised when we saw the Tangatanga team announcing that their rally will take place in Nakuru on February 8 when we had scheduled the BBI meeting in the same county after consulting the president and former PM. We will be there (Nakuru) on February 23 and we are warning the Tangatanga wing not to interfere with our meetings. We will also not interfere with theirs,” Tolgos stated.

Governor Tolgos' warning comes just a day after Elgeyo Marakwent Senator announced that there will be a BBI rally that will be held in Nakuru County.

Tolgos is in charge of organizing BBi rallies in the Rift Valley, a mandate he was given by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Tolgos further added that Ruto allies should respect the rallies that were being organised by the allies of Uhuru and Raila.

“The Tangatanga team had initially rubbished the BBI process, claiming it was meant to create positions. They have now realised that Kenyans are fully behind the process and they want to join. We now want them to respect us and respect our meetings,” he added.
