Opinion: The Tanga Tanga is losing influence – One-By-One

If Deputy President William Ruto think he sways influence or has any initial power. He should look over his shoulder. As one-by-one his allies are losing their titles and their roles to play in the National Assembly. Today was the third major role in the National Assembly plus the nominated Members of Parliament who was suspended recently.

That Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Senator Susan Kihika lost their titles in the Senate earlier in this month. Today, the Deputy Speaker of the Senate Kindiki Kithure was impeached. Meaning all the allies of Ruto has been clipped and taken out in the Senate. This is a sign of loss of importance and in the shadow.

It is easy to see why this is happening, as the dynasties are working together. Odinga is getting yet another honorary role in a Economic Recovery Council coinciding with the Building Bridges Initiative. So, Kenyatta is securing all angles and showing his commitment to his cause. Regaining control, but without the Hustler Nation or the Tanga Tanga.

This is just very weird that KANU is revived. Talks of getting Isaac Rutto and his CCM into the coalition, also the talks of unification with Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and his WDM. All of them just coming together and securing their futures. The only one, which is official is the KANU-Jubilee.

The deal and agreement that is pushing away Ruto and his men. The men who swore loyalty to him is suddenly vanishing. Just like the takeover of opposition from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and Raila Odinga when he did the Handshake. Suddenly, Sen. Moses Wetangula was kicked out and Sen. James Orengo took his place.

What is just striking is the new tandem of Kenyatta, Moi and Odinga. All of them playing their parts, shading across the chambers and cleaning the slate. The reality is that this is all knives out and taking out the ones whose undeserving their place. Impeaching and making heads-roll. The limelight and the spotlight is now on the ones whose in favour of the DP. They are falling like flies.

This is all just a house of cards. Piece by piece. All things are falling apart. What’s ironic is that this are the supposed friends and allies of the President. These are the supposed mates in the party and the ones his serving together. However, his taking them apart and making them to silent backbenchers. While the supposed opposition are voting in favour of the government. That’s shows how messed up this is and what games that are played.

Because, here is a wing of the government in turn becoming opposition without any inauguration or party. They are in-government, but really out of government. They are becoming pseudo-government like Odinga. Raila picked that place in the mix, but not officially. While Ruto’s men are kicking and screaming out of the offices. When they were supposed to be the Presidents Men. Which they are apparently not.

That’s why yet another one lost his place. No matter what character he has or what education he has. He was on the wrong and shown loyalty to the wrong man. This minute and this point of time, he was a part of the Tanga Tanga. A piece which is toxic and which isn’t as powerful as the DP says. His losing it. Seat after Seat, title after title. The tables are turning, the dwindling power is evident.

The losses are piling up. Ruto needs to find a solution and quickly. Before, the dynasties combined with the ODM has swallowed the whole thing. They are just shuffling him away like old snow. Peace.

Youth For Ruto 2022: Press Statement (14.05.2020)

Opinion: Jubilee is cleaning the house [and a possible GNU on the horizon?]

As sudden as the dynasty ticket came to life. So began the purge on the Hustler Nation and the Tanga Tanga. There hasn’t been a sloppy second, not even a breath of air between the decisions and the meetings to ouster them.

The first was to change leadership in the Parliament. Where Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika, lost the senate majority leader and majority whip. This was a clear signal that the Tanga Tanga time of relevance was over.

The Jubilee-KANU deal is clearly steering the way and clearing the house. As they had the meeting where the rippled out the high ranking Tanga Tanga out of office and insert others. Because, of the lack discipline, there was 5 more nominated senators who was expelled today.

So, it means between the 11th May and 13th May, 8 Senators from Tanga Tanga has gotten whipped and kicked out high ranking roles in government. This is within days of the coalition was forged and put in print. Which was only officially on the 8th May. This is clear deliberate actions of the President to usher in the new and leave the old. Ruto and team is pointless, they are garbage and useless. That is why they are whipped out, one by one.

The whole enterprise is clear. Take out, one by one of the loyalists to the Deputy President. Make him as irrelevant as possible. Ensure that the Tanga Tanga, the people surrounding him has less of say and less responsibilities. So, that you can make the whole Jubilee-KANU Coalition look golden ahead of 2021.

There been talk, that Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and his Wiper Democratic Movement (WDM) wants to join in. That wouldn’t be shocking. His been searching and looking to be part of a winning team. I am sure Isaac Rutto of Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) is looking for better fortunes too.

This is all signs of everyone scraping to get theirs. Soon, we will hear possibly Musalia Mudavadi, Amani National Congress (ANC) wants his piece of the action too. Who can wonder if Moses Wetangula, Forum for the Restoration of Democracy–Kenya (FORD–Kenya) wants join with his party. Gods knows if Baba or Raila Odinga, Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) wants to be apart of this, as his in the pseudo-government-official role, because of the BBI or if his scraping that now?

Who knows, but day by day were are seeing one clear looser. That is Ruto and his team. They are pinched out, one by one. Seems like the President is really flexing and wants to have as many allies as possible to make sure the Ruto allegiance is as weak as possible. Since, he can show that he got leaders from every creek and corner. That he got support and the ones with support there.

Seemingly, this struggle and battle both within Jubilee and with the talks of a grand coalition is not over. There is even speculations of the Grand-National-Unity Government. Which means that plenty of parties are participating in it. Totally making Tanga Tanga irrelevant and powerless. Only backbenchers and clout chasers.

Well, I don’t know, but Uhruu Kenyatta and his allies are playing big. They are moving and ensuring their men is behind the wheel. The purge has started and its for real. Who knows what scalp is up next, but ensure that its for the grand restructure of Jubilee and the new paradigm government. The dynasties don’t play, they are in it for the long-con. They are finding ways to ensure their wealth and their power doesn’t go unchecked. Peace.
