Wamalwa is also working with Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and Cotu boss Francis Atwoli in organising another meeting in Kakamega this weekend.
Matiang’i and PS Karanja Kibicho were in Kirinyaga last month where they joined Governor Anne Waiguru in drumming up support for the document that has split the Central region.
Days after that meeting, Kiunjuri convened 68 MPs and senators from the Mt Kenya region in Embu where they issued a statement supporting the BBI report but opposed round two talks.
Last Saturday, Chelugui said he had read the BBI report and was satisfied that it was a good document, hence there was no need for round two discussions, a position that contradicts the President’s stand.
“It is time individual, leaders and respective communities in Kenya are allowed to go through it and discuss before finally being called for a referendum,” he said.
While Uhuru is in Mombasa, Ruto has been crisscrossing the country preaching his opposition to round two of BBI hearings.
On Sunday he took on his boss and his handlers directly when he said public servants should stop taking “orders from above” without written confirmation.
Ruto, while in Narok County said “orders from above” ceased to exist with the promulgation of the Constitution in 2010.
“No public official should say they got orders from above unless it is in writing. People should not lie to themselves and pretend as if we are in the old days. Every public servant has a responsibility to implement the Constitution,” he stated.
Chapter Nine of the Constitution on the decisions of the President says a decision of the head of state in the performance of any function of the President shall be in writing and shall bear the seal and signature of the President.
The remarks by the Deputy President have elicited varied reactions from a crosssection of leaders.
Mathare MP Anthony Olouch termed Ruto’s remarks disrespectful to the President. “The Deputy President now no longer cares to respect the President. It is like he is daring the President to do away with him,” he stated.
But a now fierce critic of the President, Kandara MP Alice Wahome is of the view that the Deputy President is free to express his mind.
“Those people who are saying the Deputy President is disrespecting the President because of speaking his mind have forgotten that the Deputy President is not an appointee of the President,” she said.
Political commentator Herman Manyora said the matter is currently not tenable and the Deputy President could either walk out of government or sit down and reach an agreement with the other side.
“I think the Deputy President’s followers, even if Uhuru was to support him again, will never forgive him for what Ruto has gone through,” added Manyora.
He continued: “I pray that at some point when the dust has settled, I’ll see Uhuru, Raila and Ruto sitting together in the interest of this country”
Nyamira Senator Okong’o Omogeni said Uhuru and Ruto could soon go their separate ways if nothing was done to save their strained relationship.
