Mombasa Governor, Ali Hassan Joho yesterday clashed head-on with Deputy President William Ruto and dared him to come clean on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

Joho hit out at the DP who went on the rampage yesterday, alleging that funds used to popularize the report is an unnecessary wastage and asked the DP to stop being a pretender and declare his stand on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI)

Addressing delegates in the first county BBI consultative forum hosted by Kisii Governor James Ongwae, Joho stated that he knew that the DP was trying to embarrass the BBI project.

He called out Ruto and his fellow men to declare their stand and stop saying a different thing in the morning and another in the evening.
