During the recent launch of BBI report, some scenarios of the event involving DP William Ruto were nothing short of his feeling of dissatisfaction with the report.

Prior to the start of the launch ceremony, President Uhuru Kenyatta held an indoor meeting with ODM leader Raila Odinga out of which he locked Ruto out. But why?

The event was ironic because whereas the BBI aims at uniting the divisions negatively affecting citizens, Ruto’s body language could tell that there existed a conflict between him and the two handshake principals.
