Well, the recent aftermath of the DCI Kinoti and the supposed death threats, the plot to overthrow the campaign for 2021 of Deputy President William Ruto. Only shows the world, one thing, and one thing only. That the DP Ruto is self-obsessed to a point of no return.
The juggernaut, the Cheech to the Chong, the one half of the dynamic duo of the Jubilee. Ruto. Surely knows this, but acts a loof, acts like he doesn’t mind, but surely someone cooked this report, this letter and got the authorities to question for Cabinet Secretaries and whatever amounts of MPs.
This is an acts of self-obsessions, which haven’t been seen in a while. That the DP likes to see himself as the rising star, the one and only, the upcoming boss of the Republic. Well, we have figured that out. It is not like Musalia Mudavadi or Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka seems like viable characters to take up the mantle after Uhuru. No, not even Raila Odinga, he just have to be second fiddle, that is what his dynasty does best. Being second.
Now, DP wants to do like Arap Moi, he wants to take the mantle and come out with force. He wants to go from hustler to President. He doesn’t want to dole out monies at church functions for life, he wants power and at every cost. That is why he made up this case. Made up the allegations and thought it could peddle some sympathy for cause.
However, it has backfired. He took a shot. He shot, but missed the target. He didn’t hire goons who could aim or even make it believable, just like the Hollywood movie script of the hours upon hours end at his home during Fresh Presidential Elections season. When suddenly a cross-breed of Rambo and the Terminator passed by and made the Police Force silent for hours.
Well, Ruto thought we forgot that trick, this was yet another one and it failed too. Looking like a smock and sounding a cock. Well, we couldn’t expect greatness from someone looting, thieving and eating in office, could we. Alas, we couldn’t expect that, because then he would actually have built stadiums, proper ICT research institutions, given free laptops and whatnot of promises done within two campaigns. Which by all account is amounting to hot air.
We can all just look idly by and act like nothing. This is spin, nonsense and lies, the ever growing industry of deception from the state and true to its form. We can act like it means nothing, but it was done for a purporse, a rouse and a trick. The trick wanted something out of it. Sympathy. Care and even some check if people cared for his life.
Well, the only thing we are seeing is a bunch of headlines, mind-boggling nonsense and a routine of hogwash sprinting quicker than a marathon runner. Nevertheless, life must move on.
DP Ruto will figure out another scheme tomorrow. Wonder who will do the ground work then? Surely, not the same brother of this one. He got caught and it looks ugly. Peace.
“All men are equal in the presence of God; and all are intelligent, since they are his creatures; he did not assign one people for life, another for death, one for mercy, another for judgment.” – Zara Yacob, Ethopian Philosopher
This weekends nightmare continues to haut us, as the Ethiopian political struggle continues. As the internet is blocked and very few reliable sources. The state tries to control the flow of information, but even then, the state are dropping a few tokens that could be misinterpreted. Combined with the bloodshed of high ranking officials, which shows the problems within the state itself. It is a manifestation of it.
The Assassinated was Dr. Ambachew Mekonnen, Amhara regional state president, Chief of Staff, General Seare Mekonnen, Maj. General Gezai Abera (suicide) (ret.), Ato Ezez Wassie, Amhara regional government advisor who we’re killed on the 23 June 2019. However, it is today reported that Regional Attorney General Mr. Migbaru Kebede, who died from his bullet-wounds today on the 24th June 2019.
Later in the day, there are reports that the supposed coup plotter behind it all, General Asaminew Tsige, the former Ginbot leader and also freed by the Prime Minister a year ago after being 8 years in prison. Has been killed by local police around Bahir Dar today.
The bodyguard that the Prime Minister stated during the weekend that was in custody is now reported to have taken suicide. Therefore, the previous statements from the state doesn’t add up. This bodyguard assassinated the ones in Addis Ababa on Saturday. However, the authorities had him in custody as either they previously told the world or he was already dead.
There are some loose ends to why this happen and why the manhunt against Gen. Tsige. Because, this was a coordinated attack against the Amhara power structure both in Addis and Bahir Dar in the Amhara region. However, there is no clear sign for why, the man whose been pardoned by the leadership of today, would suddenly target the leadership of the region. It seems a bit odd.
What is also odd about the whole thing is that there a speculations going on, if Gen. Tsige was able to change the bodyguards of these high ranking officials during the last 6 months and plotted it for so long. That is mere speculation at this point.
We can wonder what is the truth or not and with few eyes on the ground. There is only a minor room for speculation without direct verified information. Especially, since the state was so early out with it on Saturday, but now by Monday, the indicated information changed. Therefore, you can wonder if Tsige is a scapegoat for the real ones behind it or not. We don’t know and don’t know what there is to hide at this point.
What we do know, is that there been plenty of killings, of direct murder of high ranking individuals, who stood close to the Prime Minister and the leadership of Amhara region. We can not conclude yet, why they were taken away, but there must be some reason for it.
We are lacking some details to ensure that facts on the ground. I hope that they will come, if not. There is an evident cover-up by the ones who needed scapegoats to clear their names, whoever they may are. Peace.
