Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday hosted a large delegation of politicians at his official Karen residence.

Speaking following the meeting, DP Ruto stated that the meeting centred around reflecting, thinking and consulting over the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) constitutional amendment bill.

"I am acutely aware that many people want us to take a position on this document but I'd like to clarify that where we are now is at a point which requires a lot of thinking, reflection and consultation.

"That is what we were doing so that we can be able to engage with the rest of the process in a way that is informed, consultative and participatory, giving every idea and opinion a chance to at least be heard," the DP stated.

DP Ruto noted that seven governors were among those present at the meeting, naming them as: Jackson Mandago (Uasin Gishu), Stephen Sang (Nandi), Josphat Nanok (Turkana) Moses Kasaine Lenolkulal (Samburu), Paul Chepkwony (Kericho), Hillary Barchok (Bomet) and Stanley Kiptis (Baringo).

He also noted that a total of 146 members of both the National Assembly and the Senate attended the forum together with select Kenyan EALA MPs.
