Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo has come out to claim that he was shouting down Deputy President William Ruto at Bomas of Kenya on Monday saying she was only responding to his questions.

The legislator claimed she lacked a microphone to respond to the Deputy President as he poked lacunas on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

“I was answering his questions because he was asking us questions about what should be done, and I was basically reminding him he is the deputy president and I should be asking him the questions he was asking and not vice versa,” the MP said in an exclusive interview with KTN News.

The MP agreed with DP Ruto’s thinking after acknowledging that there were areas that needed to be strengthened in the report even it promises more goodies to Kenyans.

“There are some issues that will be addressed through the constitutional review and some through legislative action,” she KTN News.

During the launch of BBI at Bomas, DP Ruto rose up to put a strong case for his position on the BBI report.

In his address, Ruto noted that the real elephant in the room was the post-polls winner-takes-all mentality which the BBI was trying to address by creating extra positions including the Prime Minister and two deputies.

Ruto wondered how that would address other big political heavyweights who would still find themselves without political offices.

Ruto had to fight off jeers by a section of the delegations midway through his speech after some began shouting “Respect the President.”

The Suba North MP said Ruto was talking of a coalition government something that was not addressed in the BBI report.

“BBI is talking about inclusion [and] we are saying that in a case where you win as a president, then you need to expand the framework of regions that are represented in the executive,” she during the interview.

She also dismissed reports that DP Ruto’s allies were never invited to the Bomas of Kenya conference.

According to her, the majority of the Tanga Tanga MPs chose not to attend despite invited to the forum.
