Deputy President William Ruto challenged leaders to work towards building a united nation cautioning against burning bridges in the quest to build bridges.

This coming as political leaders continued to differ on the contents of the report with some pushing for amendments to the document while others called for the passage of the document without amendments.

“ If truly we believe in building bridges, we should never leave any bridge broken and we must never break one bridge as we build the other” Ruto said during Senator Susan Kihika’s traditional wedding ceremony in Laikipia County.
