“I do not believe that corruption can stop a leader from delivering in Kenya” – Deputy President William Ruto on Citizen TV Kenya on NewsNight on the 9th March 2019
We know that DP Ruto has the ability to lie, deceive and play for the audiences. What he did today isn’t new, but just an extension of his career in the spotlight and as Deputy to the President, which has been for a while now.
This was a spin of his narratives, where wasn’t challenged and allowed to play it out. The ones naive would eat it all up. The ones who see his ways are shocked how acts out. The ones that are suffering is the people. Who has this man as their leader and Second in Command.
DP Ruto are clearly showing no remorse for his wealth, for his accumulated assets or his land-grabbing ways. Neither the lack of real effort to develop, or use the prospects of state to actually serve the population. He is just defending the ways of looting and eating, while being in office.
The Kenyan people should be worried, that this man can do this and say what he did on National TV. That he could go out with blazing guns and claim what he do. Without any security, without any fact-check nor care of proof.
He is just showing his disregard for the people he is supposed to serve. That he thinks they will eat this and accept this. This is taking the public for granted, while looting, stealing and thieving the public coffers. That he thinks is cool. Apparently, even corrupt behaviour cannot stop development, did he learn that from Andrew Mwenda?
However, this is far from the last, we will hear or see of the DP. He will linger around, there will be more scandals as long as his in office. It is just a matter of time, where either him or some of his allies are caught in whirlwind of graft and fraud. That is just court filing away, whoever dare to sue or allege a set-of crimes done.
“You cross every river when you get there. For now I am happy to serve as the DP. When that time comes, the Jubilee Party will make that decision” – DP Ruto on NewsNight 9th April 2019
Cry me river, cry havoc. Don’t give him the ability to cross the river and become the Commander-in-Chief. If he is this cunning now? How will he be in the highest office? He will be relentless and misuse the office even more.
He has learned from KANU, he has learned from ODM and using his steps in the Jubilee. If he gains even more, he will finds ways to overstep and adapt again. That is just the way he is.
Don’t eat his words. Don’t accept them. Challenge them. Because, he will challenge you, and it will not be a fair fight. Since, he will rig it to fit his narrative to ensure that he wins, no matter what. Peace.
Deputy President William Ruto seems to be the kind that lives on his lies. He continues to make them up for his own benefit. Just like the other day, he claimed there was no one dying of starvation in Turkana. Today, on this Sunday, he claimed there was no place in Kenya, there was an earthquake.
However, it is stated by serious agencies and outfits, world-wide as such, which follows earthquakes, that there was one today in Taita Taveta, at the magnitude of 4.8. Even so, the Deputy President are still claiming this was fake news and made to hurt him personally.
The only thing hurting him personally, his pride and his office. Is his lies, his deceptions and his lack of moral backbone. He has no problem to cheat, steal and blame anyone else for doing. This man has no trouble to spin, play around the bush or even create another enemy. Than, look into himself and his own cronies. To see, that its his own making and his own actions, that has gotten him here.
Not, that the Deputy President created the earthquake today, no, he didn’t and he wouldn’t been able to stir the pot of UNGA enough even, to make it thick enough. However, the DP is trying to deflect and become a victim. When, the public of several towns are and when other people felt the quake today. That is what is insane.
That the DP, whose not long ago claimed there was no hurt, no deaths as a result of famine and drought. Is now claiming there was no earthquake. What will this man, say or do to stay in power?
Well, eventually everything. He will do and say whatever it takes to stay in office. This man got no scruples, no heart or no confidence in humanity. Other, than his own career and his own assets. Clearly, that is why he acts this irrational. Acts which is beyond ordinary comprehension.
At least his boss, the President is a one-track Pony who ones in while comes with warnings of fighting corruption and taking down his cronies, when we all know that will never happen. Unless, God strikes with anger and fury, maybe even spill every gallon Brookside Milk into the streets. Just to prove, that his playful words isn’t any fun anymore. Because, the President has said and come with similar to often to make it seem feasible, to ever happen.
Alas, I am not talking about the President, but his deputy, which has overstepped again. A man who has no heart for other things than his own BIG, GIGANTIC EGO. A man of such stature, that he got nor quarrel stirring the pot, but blaming the stove for heating it up. That is the man, that is second in command at the moment, Even if CS Fred Matiang’i got a special place in the heart and mind of the President.
However, this earthquake, just proves again, what the DP Ruto will do. What DP Ruto will say. If people still kneel and believe his words. You got it coming for you. If you believe or even thinks for a second, that his statements are justified. You got it coming for you. You will be hurt, you will be played and most likely, be on the failing end or the losing end. Because, that is what he got for you, since you was stupid enough believing in him in the first place. He got you and he knows it. Therefore, he can plant whatever message he wants in your head. Instead, of actually seeing it for your own self.
What is the sad part, DP Ruto is not alone. There is plenty in the cabinet and in the Parliament that is just like him. Nevertheless, he is the symbol of these actions and closest to King. That is why his words matter more. Peace.
“There is a lot of fake news about what is happening. We have been told that 11 people have died but that is not true. No one has died as a result of the drought and we are working round the clock to ensure that no one dies of hunger” – Deputy President William Ruto
The Deputy President William Ruto better just shut-up, listen to some advice and do something sincere, if it is first time in his life since he left the role as a wandering preacher. It is time for the hustler, the grand standing man of big PR Stunts to act swiftly and actually coordinate the government combined with the whole Nairobi machinery and all authorities. To ensure that the 1 million whose in jeopardy over a warned drought in Turkana gets help.
This is if the DP cares or even has a heart, unless he wants to continue to live lavish and enriching himself on others tragedy, because that is what he does. He sits in air-conditioned home, with a nice green garden, big pool and expensive cars. While fellow citizens go without food for days, because the DP cannot do his, neither any of the other Cabinet Secretaries.
This is really insulting to the people of Turkana. A people who deserves the state to act upon this. Even some people have suggested that its happen every ten years in the region. This means, the state has known about this, as this has happen every ten year. Not only the possible FEWS NET warning in December, which stated this and the state didn’t upon that. Not the Local Government, neither the National Government. They both didn’t act or see it fit to act differently, as the drought, the shortfall of rain was on the horizon. Still, they didn’t think of the consequences, because they are living good, secured and has a pantry with food, anyway.
There been reports of dead in various of villages and counties, however, the state does whatever it can to downplay this. Which is a disgrace, not only to the deceased, but to the public, which knows better. It is insulting to the ones who are struggling and lacking the basics, because the state didn’t plan to grain storage, education in caring for the environment or lean months. Alas, the state haven’t prepared or secured, the food insecurity, which it should have. Instead, they have busy scheduling corruption scandals.
The Jubilee, the DP and the cabinet combined with the local government in the drought hit region. Got to act, wisely and with measures to secure the lives at stake in Turkana. That is, if they really care or more preoccupied with keeping power by any means, while citizens are starving… it is happening on their watch. Still, they are trying to deflect that, its one million citizens who struggles to eat. They got nothing and awaiting handouts, because the state haven’t been concerned about their food insecurity.
DP Ruto, shut-up, listen and take some advice. DP Ruto, please open your ears, get some valuable advice and do something. Not try to PR Stunt this away. That is demeaning and insulting to the public of not only Turkana, but anyone who cares about humanity. Every single person dying because of this, is a foolish death. Because, you and your people could have ensured and facilitated the public and region. So, that it would be prepared for the upcoming dry-season, the shortfall of rain and the IPC 3 level. However, you where busy doing everything else. Peace.
Today is a day of warning, where the government, the local government and its authorities haven’t been prepared or cared for it. In its ignorance, the citizens of Turkana and its draught is happening, because their representatives and the state haven’t prepared for the shortfall of food nor water in the region. Even if there was waning signs months ago.
This is not just made up that Governor Josphat Nanok of Turkana County, CEO of NDMA James Odur, CS of Ministry of Devolution and ASALs Eugene Wamwalwa and so on. Can put the blame on everything else, but not on the intial inaction of their own government post. Even if that is true, because the FEWS warned about this in August/December 2018, because of lack of rain. Still, the government kept pumping like there was no tomorrow. Did nothing about it or didn’t handle it all. Since, who would make a fuzz anyway, right?
FEWS Network Warning Des. 2018:
“Performance of the October to December short rains was highly mixed across Kenya, leading to below-average crop performance and inadequate replenishment of rangeland resources in rainfall-deficit areas. In many pastoral and southeastern marginal agricultural areas, rainfall was below 85 percent of normal, while rainfall in the rest of the country was above average. Stressed (IPC Phase 2) outcomes are likely to persist in most pastoral and marginal agricultural areas through May, and an increase in the number of poor households in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) is expected in localized areas of Turkana, Wajir, and Garissa by February” (FEWS Net, 31.12.2018).
Kenyan Government response:
“The National Government has provided total of Kshs. 1,351,196,000 for response during the period of February, March and April 2019 as follows: Food and safety net Kshs. 601,196,000. Support to household irrigation water storage program (excavation of small water pans) Kshs. 600,000,000. Support to water trucking, maintenance and rehabilitation of boreholes Kshs. 150,000,000. Water trucking by NDMA in Mandera, Wajir, Turkana, Garissa, Marsabit and Tana River and maintenance of water points in selected areas. Hunger Safety Net Programme cash transfers by NDMA in Turkana, Wajir, Mandera and Marsabit” (…) “Nevertheless, the below-average short rains have slightly increased the food insecure population from 655,800 in August 2018 to current number of 1,111,500, with the top 12 counties having a total of 865,300 food insecure people” (Government of Kenya – ‘BRIEF ON CURRENT DROUGHT AND FOOD SECURITY SITUATION IN ASAL COUNTIES, MARCH 2019’ 15.03.2019).
What is sad is the amount of people starving in a midst of draught, in region, where the state could have acted more swiftly and with more manpower. Because, they knew perfectly well that this was happening. This is in a region where Tullow Oil Company plans to drill oil with over 300 oil wells. Meaning, there is money and resources, which should lead to progress and development. So, that the region and county isn’t as impoverish as it is. However, there seems to be little or none of the seeds of the oil to go to needed projects or facilities to help out the locals.
Instead, the international oil companies, which reached an agreement last year in 2018. Have had the ability to drill for oil and the leaders have been pocketing money. While the state and the local county officials haven’t secure the public. That is what is the initial bargain in all of this. The public officials have been busy eating and now the public aren’t even getting bread-crumbs of the spoils. That’s what is even more sad about this situation. Knowing the region had hopes for the oil adventure and now seeing a drought, which brings even more despair.
Lochikar Basin haven’t brought anything to the local community, other than foreign investors pumping out their valuable resources, while the deal between Tullow and Government remains secret. As well, as the scarcity of water and other needed components of life, continue to run rampant in a region, which should have gotten some of the spoils of the wealth that is created there. Instead, the government cartels and public officials, who does not want to associate with the demise of the people in the drought, eat that up.
This could have been avoided, the state could have acted and the Turkana with their Oil should have had the resources to cope with it and be able to buy the needed imports of food and water. Alas, someone else is eating that, as long as the oil trucks are driving to Mombasa and the public see less or little of trade of it all.
While the sun is burning, little or no rain, while they await for a handout, when the government could have footed the bill, by the earnings of the oil alone. Peace.
Well, the DPP Noordin Haji dropped ball today and again stated there was Ksh. 21 billion gone missing building a ghost dams. As the DCI George Kinoti have questioned Treasury CS Henry Rotich about the money. However, in the midst of all this drama and alleged crimes. There is one obvious man, whose not under direct threat. That is the Deputy President William Ruto.
Even if Ruto has claimed, that there has only gone missing Ksh. 7 billion shillings, which is bad enough at this rate. As there is no construction and no imminent building site. There is only a paper-trail of evidence and lots of businesses getting tenders and money from the state. But no direct building of a dam.
The DPP have dropped a long list of questionable acts concerning the dams, there been several of companies involved too. In such a manner, it takes a whole village and town to build a dam. You need more companies to build a dam, than the amount of companies you need to develop the Big Four. Because, if the state used the same energy siphoning funds out of ghosts dams. The Kenyan Republic would be highly developed by a landslide.
Alas, that is not the case, the authorities are going in circles, they are pushing strings, but not digging deep. They are not questioning DP Ruto or any of his close allies. Because, that would initially trigger problems for the President too. Therefore, they are instead blaming Rotich for allocating the money and not keeping track-off it. Even if that has been fine in bigger scandals and when the regime been steady eating.
Ruto have no trouble lying, deceiving or even playing stupid. As long as his back-account get pregnant. It will be nursery within months and even escalate further if given the chance. The Ghost Dams scandal is just the freshest and biggest for while. In a month or two, there will be plenty of more ghost, frauds and other graft scandals to catch out attention.
Right now it is dams, which are paid by the state, but not existing. Just like the stadiums, but they didn’t blow the cash on them yet. That was just an empty pledge. This was a supposed building site and a development project. Instead, it is a bonanza of ignorance and plight, dishonesty and travesty, which is traditional in the sense of the guys, running Kenya at the moment.
Ruto thinks he can outsmart or act cool about it all. That he is untouchable, that he is the King. That he is might soldier, the almighty knight who are the shield and the noblest amongst men. However, he is neither, he is just crook with a fancy office. He misuses his power and eats, he tricks and he speculate on the ignorance of others. He configure the political landscape and triggers the needs of others, to gain mileage. That is what he does and he has done it perfectly.
Nevertheless, the gig is up. We know he lies and steals, it is an open-air bazaar at this point. There are no denying that. There are 7 billions reasons not to believe him now. The endless lies and trying to deflect, trying to act righteous is a forgotten game. This tale got to end. We have been here before and its not funny. It is tragic, because this taxpayers, this is donors and this is wherever the state got the revenue from and it was spoilt, taken and stolen. Before ending at supposed project for the benefit of the Republic. Instead it got pocketed and now he culprits are lying through their teeth and trying to blind people while buying time. Its getting old.
As stated, there is 7 billions reasons not to trust Ruto now. He has exposed himself and his acts. As the DCI and DPP have stated otherwise. That must hurt the pride of the Hustler. He better hustle, and do it better, because at the moment. He just sucks. Peace.
