Mavoko MP Patrick Makau has criticized the wheelbarrow and bodaboda initiative by DP William Ruto claiming it is a narrative to ride to power.

According to him, the DP’s project is a slap on the face of graduates as well as their parents. He further chastised Dr. Ruto accusing him of failing to use his office to deliver development projects since 2013 when Jubilee ascended to power only to introduce a vain narrative two years to the end of his term. Similarly the MP took issue with the Deputy President for seeking power through chest thumping. He said any leadership comes from God and not through agitation and insults. “Be humble and stop ridiculing and insulting other leaders just to show how combative you are because this will reduce you to irrelevance even before the eyes of God,” he said. On the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), the legislator said its major intention is to bring Kenyans together as well as ensure that elections are conducted without bloodshed. He dismissed claims by a section of politicians that the BBI will only create more positions for the benefit of certain individuals.
