Opinion: Ruto continue to take Ls
Deputy President William Ruto whose on his second term and in a high ranking office. He should be cool, be happy and coordinate his affairs for the next election. Ruto should be busy operating as a high ranking official and actually govern. Especially, since he has a vital role in the Republic and is the Second in Line.
DP Ruto should know better, but within 48 hours he has gotten two Ls. First yesterday he was trying to act Presidential and had his COVID-19 Address. Where he had to add, why he hadn’t been together or jointly in the Pressers with the President. It was like a mirage and where he wasn’t adding anything new. Only that he had gone missing, but was working in silent.
The DP Ruto should just wash his hands and move on. Ask what needs the National Co-ordination Committee on Coronavirus Pandemic and CS Fred Matiang’i. See if he can gather needed help, policies and structures. DP Ruto could have done that in the backdoors and from Harambee House. Instead, his trying to make himself relevant and not becoming a super-sub for the government. As he should trust the President and his appointments. Even if that is humiliating. However, with yesterday’s Presser, his took a giant L.
Today, the DP Ruto took another L. This L is him loosing the grips of the Jubilee Party. The TangaTanga members and associates are sidelined. The change of members within the National Management Committee, which is changes wasn’t made with the National Executive Committee. At least that it how it seems, but it all without our knowledge. This is really a game-changer who shows whose ruling. As this was Gazetted on the 6th April 2020.
That DP Ruto goes into public with letters and statements on the party structure. Shows that the DP is taking Ls. His eating them and vomiting. His tired of being sidelined. His the second fiddle. The backburner and the one who isn’t able to coordinate together with President Kenyatta. He as a the Deputy should be able and know these moves.
DP Ruto as a Deputy and within the High Ranking Officials both in the Government and Party. Should know how these things works and know that this was bound to happen. That it would be changes and people would be revoked or get new appointments. Not like that wouldn’t happen. For a political savvy and hustler. He should know this and operate like this happens. Instead, his crying foul and not even talking within the Party. But sending a hostile letter and trying to swift the changes, which is already gazetted. Surely, because his partners and associates wasn’t appointed. If not the amount he needs. Instead, its more Kenyatta buddies and associates. That hurts the pride of TangaTanga and the DP.
The DP should sit down and talk with Kenyatta. His fishing for relevance. DP is trying to be vibrant and fresh. He can’t manoeuvrer or make a difference. Only cry havoc and loud. His the big-man without a voice or power. His the former flame, that has stopped to burn. The charcoal is going cold and there isn’t anything there to ignite it.
That is how it seems. DP Ruto continues to take Ls. He should take it on the chin and move-on. DP should reconfigure his game-plan and rethink the way he does things. Because, instead of showing strength. Its showing his weakness and his lack of control. Only showing that he struggles in the midst of a pandemic. That his on the inside, but feeling on the outside. Which is created because of the BBI and the whole political landscape created over the last year.
Ruto needs Kenyatta more than he will say. That is why he continues to take Ls … Peace.
